Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson thanked staffers and officially proclaimed “Dallas Aquatics Day” recently.

Many other cities had to close pools this year because of a lifeguard shortage. But that wasn’t true in Dallas.

Our aquatics centers provided a safe, fun place for kids to play and learn this summer. In fact, more than 200,000 people visited our aquatics centers this summer. Bahama Beach actually set a new record in revenue.

Our Dallas Park and Recreation Department taught kids to swim and gave people a low-cost respite from the summer heat. I’m proud of their work.
