C-U aquatic centers opening this Saturday

Summer is finally here, which means that Champaign’s Sholem Aquatic Center and Urbana’s Crystal Lake Family Aquatic Center are set to open their doors once again for another season.

At Sholem, this Saturday is Opening Day, and will include a ton of special events throughout the day to help you cool off in style and welcome summer the right way. Find the full schedule below. Fear not, however, if you are an Urbana resident, CPFAC will be open regular hours starting on Saturday, as well.
