West Hartford’s outdoor pools at Beachland, Fernridge, and Kennedy parks will close for the season on Sunday, Aug. 21, 2022.

Splash pads will remain open daily at least through the Labor Day weekend, according to West Hartford Public Relations Specialist Renée McCue.

West Hartford’s tradition of winding down the dog days of summer with the annual Pooch Plunge will return this year, with resident canines having the opportunity to show off their dog paddling at Beachland Park on Monday, Aug. 22 –  the day after that pool closes to the public.
