Swimming is underway in Utica and Rome – as public pools are now open.
In Utica open swim is from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday this summer, and is also offering swimming lessons.
One young resident, 8-year-old Destiny Potter of Utica, couldn't wait to jump in!
"I'm very excited because I really want to go in the pool because our pool is really tiny sometimes so I really want to go in a big pool,” she said.
For more information about the Utica city pool hours, or swimming lessons contact the Utica Youth Bureau at 315-223-4320.
Rome's Tosti Pool is open daily from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m., and the municipal pool is open from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.
