Pool Season Kicks Off Across North Central West Virginia
Memorial Day weekend marks the beginning of pool season in North Central West Virginia, with hundreds of community swimming pools opening up to the public on Saturday.
In Clarksburg, dozens of people filled the lazy river at the Splash Zone. The weather turned out much better than the pool's grand opening weekend last year, and area residents took full advantage of the sun - including Jacob Bledsoe, who made the trip from Fairmont with his family.
"We thought it was beautiful weather, so we decided to come down. It's one of the best pools around. We thought, instead of sitting at home and doing nothing, why not come out and have some fun with the family," said Bledsoe, 13.
"I love the swimming pool, and I love my life jacket," said Marshall Bledsoe, 3.
Splash Zone is located at the V-A Park and is now open daily from noon to 7.
