Wilson Park pool to open June 5 with first Dive-in movie

With the weather getting warmer and Memorial Day approaching, we’ve already had a few folks ask us when the Wilson Park pool will open this year.

The answer? The pool will open to the public for the 2015 season on Friday, June 5.

As always, opening day will also mark the beginning of the annual Dive-in Movie series, presented by the Fayetteville Firefighter’s Association.

The movies, which begin at dark and are free to attend, will kick off with the Disney/Pixar animated film, Toy Story 3.

The full move schedule this year is:
June 5 – Toy Story 3
June 26 – Alexander
July 17 – The Lego Movie
Aug. 7 – Big Hero 6

Admission to the pool is free on opening day and during the dive-in movies. Otherwise, regular admission is $2 for kids ages 15 and under and $3 for adults.

Season passes are $45 for kids, and $65 for adults. Season family passes are also available for $125.
