Des Moines residents will have more opportunity to swim as summer winds down.
Four of Des Moines’ public pools will have extended weekend hours through the end of summer.
Ashby, M.L. King, Pete Crivaro and Union Park splash pools will now be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
In addition to the longer hours, the pools will also remain open longer into the summer season.
The Ashby and Union Park pools will remain open until August 20th and the M.L. King and Pete Crivaro pools won’t close until September 15th.
The changes came as a result of people complaining about limited weekend hours.
