It's only the middle of June and we're staring down one of the hottest summers in recent memory.
IT'S ALREADY HOT. HOW DO WE KEEP COOL?
If you have a pool in your backyard, you're in luck. If you know someone who might have one, you may just be as well off.
For those of us who don't own a pool or can't be bothered with hassling friends and family to use theirs, you're probably on the hunt to find pools that are available to the public.
SWIMMING POOLS FOR EVERYONE IN THE ROCKFORD AREA
Some are free, some might cost you a few bucks.
Some of the pools on the list might require a bit of a drive but then again, it might be worth it depending on your previous experiences with other pools in the Rockford area.
I've also included places for your little one to learn to swim. There are public, outdoor, and indoor pools. Whatever you're looking for when it comes to taking a dip, there's a good chance you'll find it in the Rockford area this summer.
QUICK, GET ME A FROZEN DRINK AND FIND ME A POOL
Either way now's the time to plan for the season and if you don't have time set aside to either swim or in my case, stand in a pool with a frozen margarita, the following is here to help.
If we missed your favorite pool or watering hole and would love for us to add it to the list, please send us a message through the station app.
