DEARBORN — The city’s outdoor pool season begins May 26 with the opening of Dunworth Pool, which now has two water slides.

Dunworth Pool will offer open swimming weekdays from 4 to 7 p.m. and Saturdays, Sundays and holidays from noon to 6 p.m. through June 14.

Swimmers are in for treat at Dunworth as they discover the new water slides, which empty into what had been the diving well and are tied together by a 14-foot launch tower. Each slide runs more than 100 feet. One of the slides is open and the other is enclosed.
