County pools will open; Kennedy will be later due to repairs

People eager to see the brand-new pools packed the Pavilion at Lemay at its opening in June 2015. On June 9, 2015, it was hard to find a parking space as the pool reached its 500-person capacity for the second time since it opened, pictured.

People eager to see the brand-new pools packed the Pavilion at Lemay at its opening in June 2015. On June 9, 2015, it was hard to find a parking space as the pool reached its 500-person capacity for the second time since it opened, pictured.

Nothing says summer like playing in the pool, and St. Louis County Parks has some of the best in the region. Most county pools will open Saturday, May 29.

The exception is the pool at the Kennedy Recreation Complex, 6050 Wells Road in Concord, which will open late due to repairs. The projected opening is June 14.

The recreation centers also offer water aerobics, swimming lessons, riverwalking, tot time, movie nights and more.
