Good Thing Mayor Nutter Officially Opened City Pools

With the heat index expected to reach 108 degrees (?!) this week, we’re relieved to say that Mayor Nutter officially opened the city’s pools on Tuesday. He was at the Awbury Recreation Center in Northwest Philly—one of nine pools officially open—yesterday afternoon to make the announcement. The other 60 city pools will open some time in the next two weeks. The pools come with a slew of other programs and rec centers that will be available as a part of the Pretty Please Don’t Start With the Flash Mobs “Fun Safe Philly Summer” campaign. [Newsworks]
