School is just about over, so it’s about that time for public pools to open. But with the city’s budget crisis, pools were one of the first thing to be cut. Thanks to Mayor Nutter’s Splash & Summer FUNd, the city is able to keep 46 of its 73 public pools open this summer.
With the help of generous donations, nearly $600,000 was raised for the fund, which had a $1.2 million goal. Check below to see if your neighborhood pool made the cut.Opening June 23
