School’s out, pool’s in

A mid-week rainstorm may have dampened those feels-like-summer vibes that were starting to circulate throughout the county, but the sun is expected to be out again this weekend and it won’t be long until residents are once again looking for ways to cool down.

Community pools around the county offer an ideal solution for people trying to beat the heat, not to mention parents trying to find things to do to keep their kids occupied now that school’s out.

Pools in Angels Camp, Murphys and San Andreas will all be open for public swimming by early next week.

The Angels Camp Pool, located in Tryon Park off Highway 4, opened for public swimming this Tuesday. It is operated by the Angels Camp Veterans Memorial District. Pool hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. for all ages and from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. for family swim. Prices are .50 cents per day for children 12 and under and $1 for anyone over 13. Season passes are also available.

The Murphys Pool, just off Church Street, is owned by the Ebbetts Pass Veterans Memorial District and opens Tuesday. Prices are .50 cents per person per day, $10 for an individual season pass and $40 for a family season pass. The pool will be open from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.

For residents on the northern end of the county, the pool at Calaveras High School opens for public swimming Monday and will be open from noon to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. It will be closed July 4. Cost is $2 per day and season passes are available.
