Yukon has two aquatic centers along with a splash pad.
The City Splash pool, located in City Park, and Kimbell Bay pool, located a Kimbell Park, will open on May 25.
The splash pad, located at Sunrise Park, also will open the same day. It operates from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily.
Both City Splash and Kimbell Bay Pools will be open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Sunday and Monday, then during normal business hours beginning May 28.

Kimbell Bay will be open from 1 to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday. It is closed on Sunday.
Season swim passes are available for purchase on an individual or family basis.
The passes grant access to all aquatic facilities throughout the summer.
Swim passes can be purchased at the Yukon Community Center.
They cost $40 for individual passes and $100 for family passes of four. Additional family passes are available for $10 per person.
Daily admission to the pools is $3 for those over 4 and $2 for seniors over 55.
There is no fee to use the splash pad.
