Why Fishtown's Swimmo is closed for the summer

Better known as The Swimmo, the pool at Montgomery Avenue and Moyer Street has seen better days.

The good news is, Fishtowners won’t completely melt away this summer. Parks and Rec recommends going to Cione Pool, 2600 E. Aramingo Ave., or Hancock Pool, 1401 N. Hancock St., instead.

    Why Fishtown's Swimmo is closed for the summer
    The neighborhood public pool needs an overhaul When Philly's Department of Parks and Recreation announced public pool opening dates earlier this week, one was conspicuously missing. A small note at the bottom, once you scroll past the list of 70-plus pools says, "Lederer Pool will be closed this season for necessary structural and mechanical repairs."

    Pets are parts of the American family and play more of a role in everyday life (even contributing to the economy). A recent Harris Poll found that three in five people surveyed had at least one pet in their household, whether they be four-legged and furry, feathered, have scales or a shell, or swim.
