Spokane pools slammed with swimmers

Scream and shout, school is out and so is the sunshine! That means hitting the pools. People lined up outside the Comstock Aquatic Center on Monday, trying to get in.

Spokane operates six city pools and the city says normally it's Comstock and Shadle that hit full capacity the quickest. The busiest times are typically between 12 p.m. to 3 p.m.  Employees have had to turn people away before so make sure to plan accordingly.

All swimming pools are officially open.

Splash pads have been open for a few weeks.
