The long wait is over. Samuell-Grand’s new aquatic center, The Cove, will have its grand opening tomorrow (Saturday, August 18) at 12 p.m.

The new and improved pool will be even better because the Park Department extended the swim season and made it free for this summer. There is enough room for several hundred guests, but if it reaches capacity they will have to stop allowing swimmers in. Get there early to grab one of the shaded cabana areas.

The new facility includes a children’s area, water slides, lap pool, diving board, climbing wall, lazy river, lily pads and a concession stand. Check out our sneak peek of the elements here.

The Cove is located at 3201 Samuell Blvd.
