Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — There are a few weeks of summer left, but some area pools have already closed for the season.
BREC decided to only keep its pools open for six weeks instead of eight in an effort to save money.
Today, NBC33 saw locks on the gates at six of BREC’s community pools.
Officials say their research shows people tend to stop swimming after the July 4 holiday, even though many families beg to differ.
BREC has decided to keep its water park Liberty Lagoon on Lobdell running for the remainder of the summer.
