WAYNESBURG, PA — Greene County’s three public pools will open for the first swim of the season Saturday, May 27. Alpha Aquatic Center in Waynesburg will open at noon and Carmichaels Pool in Carmichaels and Mon View Pool in Greensboro will each open at 1 p.m. during the three-day Memorial Day weekend.

Following Memorial Day, the three pools will be closed Tuesday, May 30 thru Friday, June 2 while school is in session, and will open daily beginning Saturday, June 3.

Alpha Aquatic Center hours will be noon to 7 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and noon to 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Admission prices for Alpha Aquatic Center are $6 for children age 17 and younger and senior citizens age 62 and older, and $8 for adults ages 18 to 61.

The aquatic center features a 330,000-gallon competition-sized pool with eight lap lanes, two diving boards and a 12-foot diving pool; a 40-by-40-foot children’s play area including a 148-foot spiral water slide, a 25-foot straight water slide, a 180-foot “lazy river” with tubes for floating, water jets and other play equipment; a bath house with lockers, restrooms, showers and changing facilities; and a concession stand and seating area.

A community room is available onsite to rent for birthdays or other special events in June and July for two hours at a rate of $50, from either 1 to 3 p.m. or 4 to 6 p.m.
