WEST DES MOINES, Iowa — People waiting to swim in one West Des Moines aquatic center will soon get their summer wish.

The Holiday Aquatic Center will open for swim lessons on Monday, June 16th at 6:15 p.m.

Open swim hours will begin Tuesday at 11:30 a.m.

The aquatic center was supposed to open for business May 31st but because of a leak caused by a broken water pipe, the opening day had to be delayed for repairs.

Crews will fill, heat, and chemically balance the pool over the next few days.
