Poll: Have you gone for a swim yet in Alexandria

Technically it’s still spring, but with the warm and sunny weather it feels like summer is in full force and locals are hitting the pools.

Alexandria’s city-owned pools opened in late May, though many private pools around town have also opened over the last month.

There are three outdoor city-owned pools that opened Memorial Day weekend and one — Chinquapin Park Recreation Center & Aquatics Facility — that’s an indoor pool open year-round.
