    So Long, Summer: Philly Pools Are Already Closing
    It feels like just yesterday we told you Philly public pools were open. And now, two months after swimming season kicked off, we're lamenting its end. It might seem early (it always does,) but Parks and Rec started shutting down public pools on August 11th, and by Friday, they'll all be closed.

Turning Germantown parking lots into rain gardens to prevent water pollution

It was just after 8 a.m. on a sunny day last June and a volunteer work crew, clad in work gloves and old t-shirts, had already begun turning a former parking lot at the Germantown Historical Society into a lush, green oasis.
