MISSOULA - Splash Montana Waterpark will be closed through Friday due to forecasts of low temperatures and substantial precipitation.
Weather permitting, the pool will reopen Saturday from 11a.m. to 6 p.m.
Currents Indoor Aquatics Center in McCormick Park remains open weekdays from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. and weekends from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Splash Montana season passes are valid at Currents when Splash Montana is not open. Punch cards and annual passes are always valid at both pools.
"The decision to close Splash Montana is to both protect children from hypothermia and to save energy costs of heating the water," said Donna Gaukler, director of Parks and Recreation.
As of Monday meterologists were predicting conditions may improve by Friday. However, it takes at least 24 hours to restore the pools to comfortable swimming temperatures, delaying the reopening until Saturday.
Swim lessons will begin, weather permitting, as scheduled on June 16.
