MANCHESTER, NH – For lots of people, summer officially begins when the city pools open for business. Well then, welcome to summer – today’s the first full day of operation for city pools, including the new Dupont Splash Pad. Although today’s high of 78 degrees may seem a little on the chilly side for splashing around, kids are generally oblivious to the goose-bumps, and may even request an ice cream cone after swimming is over.
Oh, to be young again.
Anyway, the mercury is expected to rise as the week wears on, and no doubt, the true dog days of summer have yet to arrive.
Your best resource for information about early pool closings due to weather, and other parks-related information, is to follow Manchester NH Parks and Recreation on Facebook. You can also reach the Parks & Rec office between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday at 603-624-6565.
