EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Evansville city pools are gearing up to open this weekend.

Lifeguards at Hartke Pool were outside Friday getting the pool cleaned up. Officials said they cleaned the pool, locker rooms and party area.

Last year, the Evansville swimming season was closed due to COVID-19. This year, officials said they’re back and ready to go.

”We are very excited,” Hartke Pool Manager Heather Smith said. “We don’t have as many lifeguards this year, but what we do have, they are excited to get back into the swing of things, and getting out there and being with the community.”
