Despite the cool temperatures Saturday morning many still "dove" into summer.

Public pools across Charlottesville opened their gates for swimmers Saturday.

The chilly weather kept things quiet at Washington Park's pool, but a few swimmers came out to test the waters.

Employees say normally Memorial Day weekend is packed at the pools but Saturday only the brave came out.

One guest says she's excited to be the first swimmer of the season.

"I like to sometimes, I just like to swim, I like to play games like water tag sometimes we bring balls and play volleyball across the nets and stuff," said Shams Almolhem, the first swimmer of the summer.

The Washington Park pool has newly renovated changing rooms, showers and bathrooms. Employees say they are ready for a busy 2013 pool season.
