School's Out for Summer! Stay Cool at a City Pool or Sprayground!

By Peter SM Wed, June 22, 2016

Today marks the last day of classes for School District of Philadelphia teachers and students and what better way to celebrate than to visit a local neighborhood pool or sprayground!

City Pools will start opening up today at 4 p.m. and continue opening across Philadelphia through July 1st. For a more in-depth listing of pool locations throughout the city, visit Philadelphia Parks & Recreation Swimming Pools website.


If you can't wait for your local pool to open and don't want a visit from the Fire Department after you open up that fire hydrant at the end of your block, you can keep cool at a number of fun spraygrounds around the city, suitable for all ages.

And when you want to take a break from the pool or sprayground, you can always crack open a book and add some more reading time towards your Summer Reading goals : )

Happy Summer!
