When the Rochester, Minnesota Pools and Others in Southeast Minnesota Will Be Opening

If you love the smell of chlorine and hanging out by the side of a pool with your kids during the summer, we've got the list of all the pools and their opening dates in Southeast Minnesota here. 

Unfortunately, there's been a slight issue with the opening of the Silver Lake Pool in Rochester, Minnesota.  The plan WAS to open on June 6th but someone vandalized the property and damaged the main drain cover.  Because someone decided that this was appropriate behavior, the pool is not able to open on time.  A new part has been ordered and right now, the plan is to open at some point in July.  When an official date is announced, I'll post it over on my Facebook page - Jessica On The Radio.  Give it a follow for all of the local news and upcoming events too.
