KINGSPORT, Tenn -

The Kingsport Aquatic Center opens on Monday, two weeks earlier than normal.

We're told life guards have spent the last week getting it ready. They cleaned, fixed up the deck and pumped up all of the tubes for the lazy river.

Facility spokesperson Angela Yingling told us last year about 1,200 people came by each day.

"Last year was our first season and a lot of people came to check out the facility to see what it was like and we're expecting a big year again this year," Yingling said. "We've increased parking, there are more than 500 parking spots available now. We've changed security, increased security to make sure it's a safe and comfortable environment for everyone."

The Aquatic Center opens at 10 a.m. For a full list of summer hours, visit the facility's website.
