Amarillo pools close for the summer

A sure sign that Summer is about to be over and Amarillo kids are gearing up to go back to school is the closing of the city's pools.

Sunday, August 18, 2013 was the final day for all city pools to be open.

Southeast and Thompson Pools closed Sunday, August 11, 2013 and today was the final day for Southwest Pool to be open.

People made sure to put on their sunscreen and enjoy a swim before they head back to school.

"The Summer's been great. It's really been a nice summer," said Amarillo Aquatics Manager, Shelley Gallagher "We've had really good weather so it's allowed a lot of people to come out to the pool because it hasn't been too hot, it hasn't been too rainy. It's just been a good summer."
