It’s almost splash time! The City of Colorado Springs and YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region are set to open four outdoor aquatic centers to the public on Saturday, May 25 with 2-for-1 pool entry at Monument Valley, Portal and Wilson Ranch Pools and Prospect Lake Beach.  With an admittance price of $5-$9 for two people, depending upon location, your holiday weekend can include a visit to several of these facilities at minimal cost.

The summer is looking even better at the outdoor pools with a variety of YMCA programs offered, including YMCA Swim Lessons, Sports and Swim Team Clinics, Kid’s Day Out, Aquacise, Aqua Zumba (with Child Watch), Lap Swimming, Birthday Parties and Group Rentals. Put your team together for a fun day of Beach Volleyball at the historic Prospect Lake Beach where all ages are welcome and YMCA staff will provide equipment and help in organizing games.

Day passes are available at each aquatic center.  Outdoor Pools Season passes, providing access to all four facilities, and the 2013 Outdoor Pools program guide are available online at
