Last July, the city of Alpharetta paid $5.47 million to renovate the public swimming pool at Wills Park.

And now, nearly a year later, the public will be able to enjoy all of the new upgrades and amenities.

The new pools – yes, plural; there are two pools now – at Wills Park will open on May 26.

General admission to the pool is $5 per person for a day pass. Children under 3 years old can get in free, and folks over 50 will only be charged $1 for a day pass. Family and individual pool passes for the season are also available, ranging from $90 to $300.

Wills Park now features a leisure pool and a competition pool.

The leisure pool includes a interactive play stations, class space, a waterslide, a plunge area and a zero-depth entry — also known as a “beach entry” it gradually slopes down from the deck into the water, like sand at the beach.

The competition pool has depths ranging from 4 to 12½ feet. It has 10 competition lanes, a 1-meter diving board and a 3-meter diving board.

Other new features at the Wills Park swimming pools include updated locker rooms, a shade pavilion, more deck space, a lifeguard training room and a renovated aquatics center.

On the day of its "Splash-tacular" grand opening, games, prizes and music will be featured.

The Wills Park pools are located at 1815 Old Milton Parkway. These renovations are the first the pools have received since 1987.

Pools will be open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily through Aug. 5.
