If you have lived in Texas for very long, or even for a few months, you know one thing is certain...

Summertime in Texas gets hot!

Unlike a lot of places there just simply are not a lot of fresh water bodies of water in our fair town.

Thankfully, years ago the people who were in charge of our fair city decided to build community pools so those who couldn't travel and those without access to a private pool would not have to suffer through a West Texas summer without a place to cool off.

As of this week all city pools are now open and ready to help you and your kids keep cool in the hot Texas sun.
