Citywide pool party tentatively planned for July 4

Crossett City Pool employees paint in the changing rooms as they prepare to re-open the city pool for the first time since 2016.

Barring additional weather delays or unforeseen circumstances, the Crossett City Pool could open before the Fourth of July holiday.

Pool manager Sarah Hollimon said that the construction crew is supposed to turn the pool over to her and her crew on July 1.

“At that point, we will fill it up and we hope to host a citywide Fourth of July swim party,” Hollimon said.

The party will include organized games as well as open time for those who simply want to swim.

The prices for the party will be the same as regular pool entry prices during public swim, which will be $3 for children ages 4 to 18 years and $5 for adults 19 and older. Children younger than age 3 are free.

Once the pool, opens the hours for public swim will be 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday through Saturday. Additionally, the pool will have special activities, private parties and other events.

On Tuesdays there will be Aqua Zumba classes at 6 and 7 p.m. The price for the class will be $6 each or $9 for those who wish to do both.

Wednesday night will be reserved for church swim, which Hollimon said she is still working on the details for and Thursday will be a special needs night.

“I am working with the Carousel School to iron out the details on that,” Hollimon said.

Friday nights will be family night with a $2 admission from 7 p.m. until 11 p.m.

Private parties may be booked on Saturday, Sunday and Monday evenings from 7 p.m. until 11pm. The cost for private parties will depend on the number of hours for the booking.

The fee is $250 for two hours, but additional hours may be added for $125 per hour with a maximum of four hours.

For more information, contact Hollimon between the hours of 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. at 870-500-0303.
