Eastern New Mexico University-Roswell and the city of Roswell have announced the summer season for a pool and splash pad.

ENMU-R swimming pool

The swimming pool at ENMU-R will open for the summer on Saturday.

Public swim hours will be every day from noon to 5:30 p.m. through Sunday, Aug. 4. After Aug. 4, public swim hours will be on Saturdays and Sundays only until Sept. 1 from noon to 5:30 p.m. In the case of adverse weather conditions, the pool manager reserves the right to close early.

The pool can be reserved for special events. Private parties can be booked through Sunday, Sept. 1. Pool rentals begin at 6 p.m. For private pool party reservations, contact Frances Dubiel, 575-624-7250, frances.dubiel@roswell.enmu.edu.

City splash pad

The Murphy Family Splash Pad also opens Saturday.

The splash pad at Poe Corn Park (on East Second Street just east of Garden Avenue) will be open every day (with occasional one-day closures for maintenance) from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. until the first day of classes for Roswell schools (Aug. 7).

From the first day of school through Labor Day (Sept. 2), the splash pad will be open only on Saturdays and Sundays, with the hours remaining the same, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The Murphy Family Splash Pad — named for the family of Bert and Martha Murphy, a major donor for the project — opened in 2016 and features numerous water features for children and adults. It is free to the public.
