    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.
    http://www.phillymag.com

  • I think the pools are a great amenity. We are lucky to have Ridgeway in our neighborhood. But I don't understand why they close them every year at the very peak of the season. It's going to be broiling hot for at least another month.

  • The lifeguards have had to go back to school. It is a shame the pools have to close before Labor Day, unlike they did years ago; but without lifeguards, the City has no choice.
