I remember how excited my friends and I would get every summer when we knew the public pools were going to open. I'm pretty sure every summer in middle school was spent  at the local pool. Last year when the city closed the pools due to COVID-19 I understood but honestly it made me feel a bit sad for the kids. Today is a different story , 4 Boise pools  are scheduled to open and while the opening date is still undetermined we know this much:
