    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.
