PAWTUCKET – Like the sign of the first ice cream truck, the seasonal opening of the city’s public pool means that it is truly summertime.
Veterans Park Pool will officially open on Saturday, June 28. “We’ve been working to paint it and spruce it up,” said Pawtucket Parks and Recreation Director John Blais. The outdoor pool is open to the public and the entrance fee is $1.
From June 28 through July 6, Blais said the pool will be open everyday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. From July 7 through August 14, the hours change to Monday through Thursday, noon to 5 p.m., and Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
