Kids Make a Splash on Final Day for City Pools Season

Sept. 2, 2013

If the crowds at Charlottesville city pools are any indication, Monday marked the unofficial last day of summer.

Labor Day is traditionally the last day to take advantage of public pools in the city. Dozens crowded the pool at Washington Park to enjoy one last day in the sun and the water.

"My favorite part about summer is I get to come to the pool and hang out with my friends and go places," pool-goer Trey Lee said.

Many kids are already back in school for the year, so Monday provided one final way to cap off their summer.

"Me and my dad like going to the beach and going to different places and chilling here," pool-goer Kaleb Haden said.

Even though the city pools are closed, the spray grounds at Belmont, Greenleaf and Forrest Hills parks are all open daily until Oct. 12.
