(WSYR-TV) — If you found yourself sweating a bit too much this past weekend, you’re now in luck — most pools in Central New York are open and operating at their expanded summer hours.

Unfortunately, a few pools remain closed this season due to a lifeguard shortage. These pools include Lincoln, McKinley, and Wilson pools, as well as the indoor pools at Valley and the Southwest Community Center.

While these pools are closed, Syracuse has worked hard to keep the other locations open. “We’re actually quite thrilled that we’re able to open five pools,” said Julie LaFave, the Commissioner of the Syracuse Department of Parks, Recreation & Youth Programs. “It was a stretch to get here, but we’re opening five pools this summer, seven days a week. We’ve chosen ones across the city so hopefully, we can serve as many as possible.”
