Bust out the water wings: All seven of Boise's outdoor municipal pools opened June 7, and we bring you the news with our sunscreen and swim towels in hand.
The Boise Parks and Recreation Department will have certified lifeguards on hand at each pool, but children under 7 years of age must be accompanied by an adult. Youth season swim passes start at $28 for Boise residents. A family pass for up to five family members is $110 for city residents and $14 for each additional child.
