Hot town, summer in the city

Jordan Rosenfeld plays with her friend's daughter Avery Weatherall, 15 months, in the pool Friday at the Centennial Recreation Center.

The smell of sunscreen is in the air. Find your goggles and take a dip at the area’s nearly new – and its tried but true – aquatics centers. While it will cost you more than a dollar for a day in the sun, the money funnels back into the city and to keep the pools open. Dive in!
