Season passes are $25 per person and may be purchased at Gretna City Hall, 204 N. McKenna Ave., or at the pool (once open.) A pool pass form is available online.

General admission is $4 per person ($2 after 6 p.m.) Ages 3 and under are free in the baby pool only.

A book of 10 passes may be purchased for $35.
