The Amazon Pool opens for recreational swims at 2 p.m. Staff say the summer site usually draws more than 150,000 visitors over the summer.
Eugene’s other two pools–Echo Hollow and Sheldon–are open year-round. All three are offering a free summer kick-off swim on Friday.
“We’re having a beautiful opening day weather here, little bit of the liquid sunshine so, if you’re interested in coming down and getting on the slide without a line, now’s the time to do that,” said Rob Guthrie, senior recreation programmer.
All three of the pools have different hours and different fees. Click here for more information.
