ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Albuquerque has a new feature to help you cool off this summer.

Wilson Pool has a new water slide, the first in southeast Albuquerque. The city says it’s expecting it to attract more swimmers to the area. Wilson pool is seasonal and just opened Memorial Day weekend.

Employees say the slide has been a great addition.

“A lot more people come now that we do have the slide. A lot of people are excited, they talk about it a lot,” said Shelby Grease, pool manager.

The pool and the modifications cost $42,000.

It’s one of only five water slides at city of Albuquerque pools.
