We are less than two weeks away from Labor Day which means a lot of families in the area are trying to maximize the little time they have left before their kids return to school. If spending a day having fun, splashing around at a pool, is on your to-do list you’ll need to hurry because only a couple of public pools in our area are still open.

In many cases, public pools are staffed by teenagers who are still in school, so a lot of the area aquatic centers will close a week or two before Labor Day to give those teens time to get ready to return to the classroom.

Below is a list of area public pools, most are already closed, but there are a couple that will remain open for a few more days.
