Pool time in Fort Worth

It's officially hot. The mercury rose past 100 yesterday. The kids are out of school and it's time to get in the pool!
Problem is, this year, the city of Fort Worth closed most of the city's pools due to budget cuts. Thankfully, the YMCA has come to the rescue by opening four of their pools to city residents every day from 2 to 4 p.m.
The pools are:
McDonald Community YMCA, 2400 E. Berry Street, 76105 (closed on Sundays)
Eastside YMCA, 1500 Sandy Lane, 76112
E. R. Van Zandt Southwest YMCA, 4750 Barwick Drive, 76132
Westside YMCA, 8201 Calmont Avenue,76116
This is in effect from until Saturday, Aug. 21. Admission prices are $1 for children and $1.50 for adults.
Sounds like a great way to beat the heat!
Also, the city-run Forest Park Pool is still open from 1-7 p.m. Tuesdays-Sundays.
(Note it will be closed July 2 due to city furlough day) Forest Park Pool admission prices are $2 for children and $2.50 for adults.
