The Chastain Park Pool will be opening for the summer on May 15, the ninth season under the management of the Chastain Park Athletic Club, the club announced.

This year CPAC is offering secure online registration and credit card payment for pool membership, swim team and swim lessons, all available through the web site Pool memberships are available at $350 for a household, $175 for an individual or $75 for seniors age 65 and older.

Swim team and pool sponsorships also are available at various levels, including T-shirt and banner recognition. The local Tidal Waves swim team won the 2009 Atlanta Swim Association Championship with 400 swimmers representing the team.

The volunteer-driven 501(c)(3) nonprofit has operated the pool each summer since 2002 after saving the 1940’s era pool from demolition. It has overseen more than $1 million in upgrades over the last few years.
