SHELBY- With school officially out for the summer, Seltzer Pool is ready to open its doors this weekend.
On Saturday, May 26 Seltzer Pool will officially open for the summer season. Manager of the pool Jordan Nelson explained there have been some changes made from previous seasons.
“There are no coolers or outside food allowed in the facility. You can eat out in the pavilion if you choose, but bringing fast food or ordering pizza is no longer permissible,” Nelson explained.
A concession stand is open during pool hours, Nelson added.
“We will have the same foods as last year, including hot dogs, pretzels, pizza, candies, ice cream, chips, and snow cones. Some of the more popular items we sell are the pretzels and the sundae cones,” Nelson said.
For this year’s season, Nelson explained there will be 18 guards on staff this year, which includes substitute staff.
On Thursday, May 24 and on Friday, May 25 from 4-8 p.m., Seltzer Pool will be holding a presale for season passes with a $5 discount. Individual passes for in town residents are $45, out of town residents are $60. A family pass for in town residents are $110 and out of town family passes are $160. A family is considered four people. Over four in a family is an additional $15 per person.
As far as what Nelson is looking forward to about the upcoming season, he explained he was hoping for a safe and welcoming year.
“I look forward to providing a safe and welcoming atmosphere for our community where they can come and enjoy the pool and feel safe,” Nelson stated.
