WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — This weekend is the unofficial start of summer. That means folks are firing up the grills, making waves at the beach and jumping into our city pools.

Wilmington’s three pools are open Saturday and Memorial Day as well as Saturday, June 2 and Saturday, June 9 from noon to 5 p.m. They’ll open for the season starting June 11.

The Northside Splash Pad right next to the Northside Pool and across the street from the Wilmington Police Department is great for little swimmers and is already open every Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

“We finally got some decent weather, and it’s not raining, so it’s nice to get in the water and get some warmth and get back in the water like we’re supposed to be,” dad Jared Johnson said. “We just came from Hawaii, so it’s nice to get back into it.”

You can also visit the Robert Strange Pool on S. 10th Street and the Legion Stadium Pool off of Carolina Beach Road.
