[ARCHIVED] Splash Pad to open tomorrow

Long Branch Park pool will remain closed this season

KILLEEN, Texas (July 28, 2022) – The City of Killeen’s Recreation Service’s Aquatics division is announcing that the Junior Service League (JSL) Spray Pad at Long Branch Park will open starting Friday, July 29.

Repairs on the Splash Pad were performed last Friday, and crews had to test the repairs to ensure the splash pad was functioning properly. 

The pool at Long Branch Park will remain closed for the 2022 summer season, as repairs will not be able to begin until Sept. 12 and will take several days to complete.

Because this limits access to affordable aquatic facilities for Killeen residents, the City of Killeen will be offering access to the Family Aquatic Center at a discounted rate that will mirror the price of entry at Long Branch Park Pool for the remainder of the 2022 pool season. 

That means that beginning Aug. 1 through the end of the season, fees will be $3 for adults and $2 for seniors and children.

The Family Aquatic Center will be open through Labor Day weekend.

Hours of operation for the Aquatic Center are:

  • Tuesdays - Fridays: 11a.m. - 5p.m.
  • Saturdays: 10a.m. - 6:30p.m.
  • Sundays: 1p.m. - 6:30p.m.

For more information about our pools, visit www.KilleenTexas.gov/swim or call (254) 501-6390. There, you will find rules and attire guidelines, including a cooler fee.
