Well, summer is upon us and the temperatures sure bear that out!

A few random pieces of information on what’s happening in our wonderful City for summer fun.

Let’s start by talking about the wave pool. The Seguin Wave Pool is 30 years old and at the time it was built, it was cutting edge-water fun.  Fast forward to 2020 – and COVID = shutdowns.

After sitting idle the past two summers, kiddos and their families will soon be able to enjoy the Seguin Wave Pool again! When the wave pool opens for a preview on Memorial Day weekend (Saturday, May 28 through Monday, May 30), it’s going to look brand spanking new. Contractors have been working hard to give the wave pool an extreme makeover. The Wave pool and kiddie pool have received new coats of paint and new concrete surrounding the four shade structures has been poured. The restrooms, concession stand, entrance and break room have also been completely remodeled and re-painted.

New this summer - more wave time has been added! Enjoy catching waves for a full 15 minutes, followed by 5-minute interval breaks. We continue to allow visitors to bring a picnic and drinks (non-alcoholic and no glass, please!) to enjoy. The concession stand will also have a limited menu of items and drinks.

The wave pool’s regular summer season is June 4 through August 7, 2022 and is open from 12 to 6 pm Tuesdays-Sundays. 

So, if you’re looking for an affordable, family-friendly, fun in the sun summer activity – the Seguin Wave Pool is the place to be. Admission is $6 for ages 12-59, $5 for ages 4 to 11 and $5 for ages 60 and older. Admission is always free for children 3 and younger. After 4 pm, you can get in for half-off. What a bargain! 

Wave pool season passes are also available. An individual season pass is $50 and a family season pass is $125 (for up to 6 family members per household). Season passholders get an added perk of being able to enter the Wave Pool one hour early at 11 am throughout Memorial Day weekend.

And there’s more – swim lessons for ages 4-8 and private rentals are also available at the wave pool. The pool can be rented for private parties after hours on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from 6:30 - 9:30 p.m. For information on aquatics program and private rentals, give Parks & Rec a call at 830-401-2480or visit 

You can always cool off for FREE at the Splash Pad at Park West and it’s open NOW! Hours are 9 am to 9 pm every day.

One more really cool family activity coming soon to city parks are movies in the park. H-E-B has partnered with Seguin Parks & Recreation to fund an outdoor movie screen. More details on this coming soon – so follow the City’s social media pages and keep reading my future columns!

I know we are all ready to celebrate the end of another school year and the return of a normal post-COVID summer. Before I sign-off, a big congratulations is extended to all of our local students who are graduating!

WE CAN DO IT… Together!
