Posted May 20, 2010

Swimming Pool

It's hard to believe, but the region's seasonal pools and spraygrounds are getting ready to open.

So I'm listing the big ones. If I've forgotten one, please add it in the comments.

Be sure to click on the links to find the hours of operation and learn more about the fees and swim lessons for each of the pools.

Please note: This list includes only municipal or county-run pools that anybody in the public can swim at ... not pools at private clubs or neighborhoods or pools that require some sort of membership.
