Let's Go

Featured Event: Last weekend for splash park activities

Summer really is almost over.

With Labor Day right around the corner on Monday, this weekend is everyone's last chance to enjoy the City of Palestine's splash pad at Reagan Park, which remains open through Tuesday, and the city swimming pool at the Palestine YMCA, which opens Saturday and Sunday, 3-5 p.m.

The YMCA will remain open for water aerobics classes after Sunday, but Sunday afternoon marks the end of the season. For information, contact the City of Palestine at 903-731-8400 of the Palestine YMCA at 903-729-3139.
