Pella’s outdoor aquatic center opened for the summer season during Monday’s Memorial Day holiday. The opening officially kicks off the summer season at the pool, which will have the main pool available from 1:00 to 8:00 p.m. Tuesday through Friday before opening the entire facility for summer hours this coming weekend.
Pella Aquatic Center Manager Jan Bensink says she has gotten one common question from people curious about the first swims of the summer season.
“They keep asking me if it’s going to be warm enough,” says Bensink. “Our pool is heated, so we keep them about 81 or 82 degrees, and as it starts to get warmer, we turn it down a little bit to around 80 degrees.
