As soon as the sun starts shining in Yakima and the weather becomes warm enough to wear shorts, one of the first questions people ask is when Franklin Pool opens in Yakima. Here's what we know.

Franklin Pool will open to the public on June 15th, 2013, but this date is tentative. There is a chance it may open the third week in June. If this changes, we'll let you know.

Franklin Pool offers a variety of fun including swim lessons, a snack bar, lifeguards on duty and more.

The good news is if you can't wait that long, Lions Pool is open all year round! Other than those two options, you're only way to go swimming is by getting a YMCA or Yakima Athletic club membership, which is perfectly fine as both of those places also offer swimming-type classes and activities.
