BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- It was a beautiful Memorial Day and many families in the area headed to local pools to spend quality time together. Russell Sims Aquatic Center saw lines form early Monday morning in anticipation of the day ahead. Once inside swimmers took to the water for some holiday fun. One dad said it was a great place to take the kids.
"The only thing we knew was that the kids wanted to go swimming, we hadn't had the opportunity to go this weekend. We told them that I wasn't sure where we were going to go, but this was probably the easiest fix for us, was as a family to come here. So, the kids are already in the water, they're having a blast," said Ron Scruggs.
The three day weekend marks the first time Russell Sims is fully open for this season, but swimmers will have plenty of chances to hit the water. The pool is open from now through Labor Day weekend.
