Several Omaha area pools — including the University of Nebraska at Omaha’s pool — are open for summer swim play.

UNO’s HYPER pool briefly closed in May for annual maintenance work but reopened Monday. Open swim hours are 6 a.m. to 9 a.m.; 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. and is free for students and campus recreational members. Otherwise, for a $7 daily entry fee you can gain access.

Many Omaha city pools are now open and have extended Friday hours. Typically, most pools close at 5 p.m., but depending on the pool will stay open until 8 p.m. Admission is $3 for children and $5 for adults. The following pools have new reduced rates: Camelot, Cryer, Hanscom, Hitchcock, Karen, Lee Valley, Miller and Spring Lake. At those pools, children pay $1 and adults get in for $2.

Elmwood Leisure Pool and Zorinsky Aquatic Center will open Saturday — later than planned due to maintenance work.
