Austin (KXAN) – Three more swimming pools will open by Monday, June 16th said Austin Parks and Recreation.

A lifeguard shortage has been keeping many of the city’s pools closed. A recent job fair resulted in 201 applicants interested in the job.

The Department is projecting to open Civitan Pool on Saturday, June 14th, and both Walnut Creek Pool and Metz Pool on Sunday, June 15th.

This increases the open pool in the city to 24.
