Area Parks Open Pools for the Summer Weekends

With kids off from school this Monday for Memorial Day, parents can capitalize by taking them to local parks.

Starting Saturday, City of Binghamton parks will be opening their pools for the weekends.

Along with the pools being open, the city's two carousels at Binghamton Ross Park Zoo and Recreation Park will be operating Monday through Friday 3:00pm to 7:45pm and Saturday through Sunday noon to 7:45.

"Well it's outstanding, a lot of people have different jobs. I've actually been in the parks and recreation field for almost 40 years and to actually come out here today and you can probably see in the background the kids are playing on the playground, people are out here playing tennis today," said William Barber, the Commissioner of Binghamton Parks and Recreation.

Also new this year, starting Tuesday the pool at Recreation Park will be open evenings from 4-8pm.
