Just in time for the Memorial Day weekend, eight Clark County pools and water parks will open for business Saturday.
“Memorial Day Weekend is not just the unofficial start of summer,” County Commissioner Susan Brager said in a statement. “It’s the start of a season of fun for the valley’s kids. And nothing is more fun for a child than a day of splashing around a swimming pool. It’s also a great way to escape the heat.”
County water parks feature slides, fountains, play areas, zero-depth entry for young swimmers and a shaded pool deck. Water park fees are $2 for youths ages 3 to 17; $3 for adults ages 18 to 54, and $1 for seniors. Children under 3 are free.
Neighborhood pool fees are $1 for youths ages 3 to 17 years, $2 for adults 18 to 54, and $1 for seniors. Children under 3 are free.

• Desert Breeze Water Park, 8275 Spring Mountain Road
