The splash pads will be open Friday from 2 p.m. until 7 p.m., and then Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
After the Memorial Day weekend, the splash pads will be open daily from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. through the end of the school year in June, weather permitting. When the school year wraps up they will be open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. through Labor Day.

“The holiday weather forecast looks incredible with lots of sunshine and seventy-degree temperatures, so we made the decision to open our popular splash pads this weekend for families to enjoy. Our splash pads are a free, fun, and cool destination for City children and their families and continue my Administration’s longstanding commitment to supporting programs and parks to further improve the quality of life and health of our residents."
- Mayor Brown

The city said an 11th splash pad located at the Kensington Pool will open once construction is complete.

The Cazenovia-Connors, Kait, Harrity Memorial Pool and Lovejoy Pool, two of the city's indoor pools, are also open for free and lap swimming Monday through Friday.
