The Aquatic Center is gearing up for the summer season

The Kirksville Aquatic Center are getting ready for summer.

Crews are getting a northeast Missouri water facility ready for summer.

Our cameras were there Wednesday afternoon as employees at the Kirksville Aquatic Center were filling up the outdoor pool.

The staff has been working hard the past few days doing last-minute touch-ups. They tell us they're really excited for what the summer season will bring.

"At the outdoor pool, you can expect a zero beach entry for younger swimmers, a water slide, a diving board. A lot of great family fun. We have so many activities going on all summer long. Swimming lessons, water aerobics and all kinds of thing to keep you busy," said Recreation Specialist Robin Harden.

The outdoor pool at the Kirksville Aquatic Center will officially open to the public this Saturday afternoon at 1:00.

There's something new you will notice this year...the prices. Just recently the city approved a price increase at the aquatic center.
