Your long summer days by the pool are about to take a dive.

The rolling closure of Philadelphia’s more than 70 public pools started last week, with the season coming to an official end Aug. 23, according to the Philadelphia Parks and Recreation Department.

Goes by quick, huh? Pools, which began to open around mid-June, stay open for about six weeks each. A team of about six people at the department determines the schedules and takes factors like staffing — many workers are students and teachers who are getting ready to go back to school — and attendance into consideration.

While the closures are bad news for avid swimmers, there’s a silver lining for those looking to avoid crowds. Interest this time of year really begins to drop, Commissioner Kathryn Ott Lovell previously told The Inquirer.

"By the end of the summer, they're a huge novelty in the beginning, they're jam-packed in the beginning, and then by the end of the summer, like the last two weeks, [there's] much less usage," she said. "I think the novelty has worn off, people go on vacations in August, they go to visit family out of town, and so we definitely see a decline in usage toward the end of the season."

Parks and Rec tries to keep a pool accessible in each neighborhood during the rolling openings and closures. But even if your neighborhood pool is closed, spraygrounds will stay running until next month. The city has nearly 80 spraygrounds, and a handful of other “spray features,” like the LOVE Park fountain.
