GRAND OPENING - Community Swimming Pool at Lasker Park

Tuesday, August 15, 2017

On August 15th at 11 a.m. the doors will open to the grand opening festivities for Galveston’s first community swimming pool. A historic moment for the City, the $4.1 million project will provide residents with a state-of-the-art facility, which includes a recreational pool with kid-friendly play structures and a body slide, as well as an eight-lane short course yard pool for hosting swim meets. This new addition to the Galveston Parks System will give the City the ability to provide fitness classes and swimming lessons and will also provide the opportunity to offer safety courses, such as first aid, CPR and lifeguard training. Grand opening ceremonies will offer remarks from those who made this project possible as well as City officials, followed by a ceremonial ribbon cutting at 11:30 a.m. Refreshments provided by Better Parks for Galveston from noon – 3:00 p.m. For more information, please visit
