Swimming & Pools

May 16, 2012

On Thursday’s Central Standard, it’s the final chapter in our three part series on how we seek out water. Part one was fountains. Then, we looked to local lakes and rivers. Now, we’re going to explore a childhood classic: swimming pools. Well, swimming and pools.

We'll add your favorite pools to our interactive water map of the city. Also, it's time to announce the winner of our water photo contest.

Remember those fun times at the local pool? When summer meant long days in a swimsuit and you could spend the afternoons kicking back on a float and drinking lemonade through a straw?

Find out about local pools to check out this summer, why swimming for fitness can be for anyone and how to take care of your backyard pool. Is it time to trade your Chlorine and other pool chemicals in for salt?
