The Budlong pool is now open, and today is a beautiful day to go test the waters. I hear they’re reliably cold as the season opens. A little background from the Cranston Wikipedia page, for those who don’t know:
Cranston is home to the Budlong Pool, one of the largest outdoor swimming pools in the country. Built in the 1950s as a Works Progress Administration project, it is a staple of the community.
With all the outdoor water parks that have sprung up in the past few years, I wonder if Budlong is still one of the largest. Nevertheless, it is a great place to hang out with the kids for the summer. See you there!
