Parks department announces public swim season dates


“There’s not that much difference in the proficiency between a 15-and 16-year-old,” Sievert said. “We ran it by the city officials and they decided to ok it for lifeguards.”

Lifeguard training is scheduled April 29 through May 7 in the evenings at the pool, Sievert said. Class is also scheduled on Saturday, May 3. Class completion does not guarantee employment, according to a flyer.

Swim time is also scheduled for students with special needs on Fridays beginning June 6 from 5:15 p.m. to 6:45 p.m., weather permitting. If time for swim lessons are needed due to rainouts during the week, the special needs swim will not take place.

Calling the pool (817-598-4382) or the parks and rec office (817-598-4124) on Friday mornings will ensure the swim is being held.

Open swims will be held daily until Aug. 22. Hours are 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday with Saturday and Sunday times running from noon to 7 p.m.

Families looking for fun that’s not water related can attend Movies in the Park Saturday evenings in June at Holland Lake Park. Movies will begin at dusk on the ballfields at the park. Lawn chairs and blankets are encouraged with the concession stand open for those who don’t bring their own food.

For information, visit or call 817-598-4124.
