Atlanta, GA --  Slip on the flippers and throw on the goggles. The annual opening of the Grant Park Pool is only one week away.<?xml:namespace prefix = o />

Swimming officially starts again on Monday, May 30th (Memorial Day) at the Grant Park Pool, located at 625 Park Avenue in the beautiful 132-acre Grant Park.

In honor of this annual rite of summer, District 1 Atlanta City Councilmember Carla Smith will host the annual Grant Park Pool Opening Day Party from 2:30 until 4:30 p.m. on the pool deck.

The public is invited to enjoy live music, free hot dogs, pool games and more. As always, normal pool admission fees will apply. Sign-ups are happening now for swim lessons and swim clinics.

Due to the popularity of this Atlanta tradition, attendees are asked to arrive early on Monday, Smith said.

Councilmember Smith sees the party as an annual celebration for the surrounding neighborhoods and for the Friends of the Grant Park Pool, a non-profit organization formed in 2004 to help ensure that the community pool is a nice, clean and safe place to enjoy.
