The City of L.A.'s 33 seasonal pools will open for the summer on Saturday afternoon.

Despite budgetary woes, the price for a swim remains the same as last year: $2.50 for adults (18-64), which drops to $2 if you've got a City library card. Kids 17-under, seniors 65+, and the disabled can swim for free.

Saturday also marks the start of the 5th year of Operation Splash, a program that provides free swim lessons and junior lifeguard training to kids and youth, and ensures 7 pools stay open an additional week at the end of the season.
