Bernalillo County kicks off ‘Free Swim Fridays’

BERNALILLO COUNTY, N.M. — It’s hot outside but Bernalillo County is offering “Free Swim Fridays” as a free opportunity for people to cool off each week.

Bernalillo County Parks, Recreation and Open Space is waiving admission at all BernCo aquatics facilities each Friday between now and Aug. 4.

The county says you can bring your own food and drinks if you want. However, glass and alcohol are prohibited.

“I don’t think there is a better way to cool down than poolside. So, to be able to offer this service free to BernCo residents during the hottest days of the summer, is very exciting,” said Debbie Jo Almager, the director of the county’s Parks, Recreation and Open Space department.
