Over 200 people hit the pool Sunday

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

The hot weather drove many families outside to enjoy the pool at Indian Mounds.

 

Managers say they estimated around 200 people came out to beat the heat, and attendance was even higher Saturday. Swimmers enjoyed diving off the board, riding the water slide, and playing on some of the features.

Workers say these last couple of days have been some of the busiest they've seen this summer. "We've had a few big days where in and out we've had about five hundred people in the pool, but for the past two weeks we've been pretty slow, so this has been a big change for us, having three hundred people in here," said manager Luke Simmons.

 

Indian mounds pool will also be open next weekend on August 31, and September 1st and 2nd. They close for the season on September 3rd.
