School’s out and summer’s heating up!

Taking a dip in a pool is a great way to cool down. But, for many families, joining a swim club is a budget buster. While lakes are a refreshing option, pools offer reliably clean and cold water – and a place to gather for playdates, too.

To help your family beat the heat, we’ve put together a list of public pools — including information about cost and hours. We hope it will come in handy during the steamy days of summer! Have a favorite pool we should add to this list? Let us know in the comment section below.
