From the City of St. Augustine

What better way to start the summer than with a pool party? And that’s just what the City of St. Augustine has arranged for the opening of the Galimore Center pool to kick off the facility’s second summer of swimming.

The pool and the party starts at noon on Friday, May 23 at the Galimore Center, 399 Riberia St. The public is invited and encouraged to come prepared to swim.

The pool’s summer long season runs from May 23 through Labor Day, September 1. Admission to the Willie Galimore Center Community Pool is free for the second year thanks to a generous gift from the Jaguars Foundation.

Friday’s opening day activities include free hot dogs and soft drinks, program demonstrations by the St. Augustine Family YMCA, and the opportunity to sign up for swimming lessons or YMCA summer camp.

For more information about the pool’s operation, contact the St. Augustine Family YMCA at 904.471-9622.
