We are starting to feel the real heat of summer this week — and the sweltering temps have us running right to Philadelphia’s public pools. Whether you’re a lap swimmer, a sit-on-the-edge sunbather, or a diving board show-off, there’s a pool in Philly where you can splash around to your heart’s content. The best part? They’re all totally free.
