Admission will be free again this year.
Crews are working to clean all of the pools. They should be filled with water this week or next, Charnock said.
Kanawha County and smaller towns in the area aren't having the same problems attracting lifeguards.
The pool at Coonskin Park should be fully staffed by its opening date on Memorial Day weekend, said Jeff Hutchinson, Kanawha County Parks director.
"We've tried to hire the lifeguards that we used last year," Hutchinson said. "We can normally get most of them to come back."
The YMCA is two or three lifeguards from being fully staffed for the season at Pioneer Park in East Bank, said Erin Dydland, aquatic director. The agency is still accepting applications for lifeguards, she said.
The YMCA has operated the county-owned pool at East Bank for the past five years. It will open on June 1.
Although the YMCA operates the pool, Kanawha County Parks still handles the maintenance, Hutchinson said.
Anyone wishing to apply for a lifeguard position with the YMCA should call 304-340-3527.
The pool at Shawnee Park in Institute will open on May 25, said Aaron Settle, who oversees aquatics for the City of Dunbar.
"We're fully staffed and ready to go," he said. "Things are looking good so far."
