Cabarrus cools off

Swimming pools are open for the season, and Cabarrus folks have options on where to take the plunge.

Camp Spencer, the former Cabarrus Boys & Girls Club camp, offers swimming, and the John F. McInnis Aquatic Center in Concord also offers outdoor pool fun and swimming lessons.

Beyond the public options, of course, are the neighborhood swim clubs.

The aquatic center, at 151 Academy Ave. N.W. in Concord, offers both child and adult swimming lessons, water aerobics and public swim. Patrons must buy a privilege pass to swim.

Camp Spencer is a 50-acre park with fishing, cabins and a swimming pool open Memorial Day through Labor Day each year.
