With the weather finally turning for the better, us Casper folks are looking for any way possible to get outdoors and enjoy the warm temperatures. As any native will tell you, we have nine months of winter, three months of summer...with maybe a day or two of spring and fall mixed in.

So when the weather heats up, it's only natural to want to take advantage of it. Some people spend all summer out at the lake. Others take random trips. Then, there's those of us that have limited time, money, or transportation. Sometimes, children dictate how we spend our summers. Whatever you have going on, spending a few hours at one of our outdoor pools can be a great source of enjoyment, relaxation, or a way to kill the summertime blues. Check out the press release below, and we'll see you at the pool!
