Congers Pool opens early for Memorial Day weekendPosted: Updated:
The Congers Pool opened for the first time this season Saturday afternoon.
A decent crowd showed up to get a tan or cool off in the water.
Parents say their children couldn't wait to take a dip with new friends.
"Couldn't wait to get here this morning and I think it was a big surprise that the pool was opening earlier," said Maria Talebian of Valley Cottage. "I know we usually only have mid-June openings so thanks to the superintendent for working on that."
Congers Pool is only open on the weekends through June 17. It will be open daily starting June 23.
