Public pools open this weekend

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT)-- It's going to be a beautiful weekend, so why not cool off this Memorial Day weekend?

A couple of Knoxville pools open Monday. First, Ed Cothren Pool on Reynolds Street, close to downtown, lets swimmers get in for just $1.50.

Inskip Pool off Bruhin Road in North Knoxville is $3 a person. The schedule for both is 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 1:00 to 6:00 p.m. on Sundays.

The Bandy Creek Pool in Big South Fork will stay closed all year due to budget cuts from the government sequestration.
