KNOXVILLE - The City’s outdoor swimming pools open this weekend, which has an extra day for many City employees, as City of Knoxville offices will be closed Monday, May 27, for the Memorial Day holiday.

Ed Cothren Pool (Malcolm-Martin Park, 1737 Reynolds Street) and Inskip Pool (at Inskip Park, 4204 Bruhin Road) open for the season on Saturday, May 25. Hours of operation are 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monday thru Saturday; 1-6 p.m. on Sunday.
