It's Memorial Day Weekend, and that means the opening of Joplin's Aquatic Centers. Recreation Manager Paul Bloomberg tells News Talk KZRG Schifferdecker, Ewert, and Cunningham Parks have all opened their pools for the summer, although traditionally this holiday weekend tends to be rather slow for business.
"To be honest it's actually one of our slower days. In years past the temps have been in the mid to high 70's. This year, however, it looks like it'll be about 85, close to 90."
Bloomberg adds that the pools will be closed next week Tuesday thru Friday due to school still being in session.
