The Camp Bowie Family Aquatic Center pool will open at 2:15 Saturday, and Wiggins Pool will open at 2 p.m. Sunday, the city’s parks and recreation director, David Withers, announced Thursday.

Earlier this week, Wiggins Pool had a tentative opening date of Friday.

Wiggins said earlier the pools’ openings had been contingent on the cloudiness from chemicals being filtered out of the water.

The pools will initially be limited to 50 percent of their capacity based on the governor’s COVID recommendation.

The morning sessions at the aquatic center will not open until lifeguard certification is completed June 26. The pool’s schedule until then will be:

• Monday — closed.

• Tuesday and Thursday — 2:15 p.m. to 8 p.m.

• Wednesday, Friday and Saturday — 2:15 p.m. to 5:45 p.m.

• Sunday — 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Once morning sessions open, they will be held Tuesday through Saturday from 10:15 a.m. to 1:45 p.m.

Wiggins pool hours are:

• Monday — closed

• Tuesday to Sunday — 2 p.m. to 5:45 p.m.
