City residents swim free again this year

With just five days left until the Dixon Park Pool opens for the season, city officials and local philanthropist Doris Buffett have once again struck an agreement that will allow Fredericksburg residents to use the pool at no charge for the season.

Buffett will reimburse the city for the entry fees for city residents. Non-city residents will have to pay to use the pool. You can find the county resident admission fees and other pool information here (Just note that the city is going to update this Web page to read that city residents swim for free.).
