According to a press release from Killeen Communications Director Hilary Shine, the Family Aquatics Center at Lions Club Park will open from Noon to 5 PM Saturdays and Sundays beginning July 11 and will remain closed on weekdays.

In order to comply with state COVID-19 protocols, capacity will be limited to 300 people. Pool and lounge areas will be open, but water slides, the rock wall, basketball hoops and certain spray features will be closed.
