QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

It's a sign that summer is winding down.

The Quincy Park District is closing Indian Mounds Pool for the season this weekend. Sunday is the last day to take a dip there. In past years, the park district kept public pools open longer, but that changed because of staff going back to school and lower attendance. 

"Because school is starting up the next week. and really once we see August hit, our attendance drops off  and once school starts we don't see anybody," Quincy Park District Recreation Supervisor Shane Hibbard said.

Park district officials say attendance this year was down slightly. If you're still looking for a place to cool off, the park district says the Washington Park splash pad and other community pools will stay open in the fall.
