The list of facilities that will be open Friday, June 6, include:

- Dick Nichols Pool
- Dottie Jordan Pool
- Dove Springs Pool
- Givens Pool
- Martin Pool
- Shipe Pool
- Stacy Pool
- Westenfiled Pool
- Shipe Wading Pool
- Stacy Wading Pool

The Aquatic Division is working to open most of the remaining pools Monday, June 9.

- Balcones

- Civitan
- Dittmar
- Gillis
- Govalle
- Kennemer

Due to Civitan Pool not opening on Friday, Montopolis Pool patrons who were to be transported to that pool by previous arrangement will now be transported to Martin Pool. The Montopolis Pool, still under repair, is to open soon.
