The heat is relentless this summer with temperatures reaching the three-digit mark. It seems the only escape is to stay indoors with an air conditioner on at full blast. Don’t let the summer pass with your family trapped behind four walls! Bring your kids to any one of McAllen’s public pools or splash parks for a refreshing dip into cool waters and a scrumptious picnic under a shaded area.

Take a look at the hours of operation for each public pool and splash park in McAllen, through August 25th.
