The new Kirksville Aquatic Center’s grand opening celebration is being pushed back. The original plan was to open the facility on Memorial Day.

Passes for the water park will be available for purchase starting on Monday, April 26th at the Parks and Recreation Office on the first floor of City Hall, or online at

The wading pools at both Brashear and P.C. Mills parks will open on Saturday, May 29, 2021, and will both be open daily from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm. Once the new Kirksville Aquatic Center opens, the wading pool at Brashear Park will be open on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm, and the P.C. Mills wading pool will be open on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm.
