City Pools Set to Open Saturday!

Wheeling’s city pools will be open for fun in the sun beginning Saturday, June 3.

The facilities – Garden Park, Warwood; Bridge Park, Wheeling Island; Grandview, Wheeling Heights and 36th Street, South Wheeling – will be open noon to 6 p.m., daily, weather permitting.

“We are looking forward to another season at the City pools. The pools not only provide a recreational opportunity for our residents, but they are the perfect place to beat the summer heat,” said Rochelle Barry, director of parks and recreation, noting this weekend’s weather forecast includes temperatures in the upper 80s.

Swimming lessons and Family Fun Nights will also be held at all locations at various times. A schedule of events can be viewed at
