Pool Season Opens With A Splash San Antonio’s Newest Pool Opening at Elmendorf Lake Park

CONTACT: Connie Swann, 210-702-6122


SAN ANTONIO (June 12, 2019) Get ready to make a splash this pool season with San Antonio Parks and Recreation. All twenty-four of the City’s outdoor pools will be open for the summer beginning Saturday, June 15.  Celebrate the first day of pool season at the grand opening of the City’s newest pool at Elmendorf Lake Park.


"This new pool is part of the 2017 bond project and represents an investment of almost $2.2 million dollars in District 5, a huge investment for the City's Westside," noted Councilwoman Shirley Gonzales. "It's a refreshing and cool space for our neighbors to enjoy during the summer...for free!"
