With the school year winding down and the temperatures rising, it’s time to find ways to cool down and have fun during the next couple of months without roaming too far from home. One of the best ways is at Somerville’s two outdoor and one indoor pools.
Latta Brothers Memorial Swimming and Wading Pool: Located at Foss Park (235 Broadway), Latta Brothers opens for the season on Saturday, June 27 and will remain open through September 7. The Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation operates the pool daily from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. during the summer. And best of all? It’s free to swim!
Dilboy Memorial Swimming and Wading Pool: Dilboy Memorial (110 Alewife Brook Parkway) opens for the summer season on Wednesday, July 1 and closes on Saturday, August 29. The City of Somerville manages the pool, which is open Monday through Friday from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Individual pool passes are $40 and family pool passes are $75 for the 2015 season.
Kennedy School Pool: Located in the basement of the Kennedy School (5 Cherry St.) this pool offers family swimming, lap swimming and swimming lessons. It’s a great place to hide out from the heat and get the whole family in the water for fun, exercise or education. The schedule and fees vary, so check the pool’s website for the latest information.
See you poolside!
