Bronx residents enjoy seasonal opening of pools

Cloudy skies didn't keep some Bronx residents from enjoying the opening of the city's outdoor public pools Saturday.



The pools are open daily from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. throughout the summer.



Parks department officials say pool-goers should make sure to bring a sturdy lock to keep all their valuables safe.



Residents who spoke with News 12 say they enjoy going to the pool because it's closer than any beach.
