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 : )
