"Our swimming pools and spray parks are just a few of the many free or affordable recreation opportunities for Pittsburgh residents this summer,” Ravenstahl said. “They are a place where friends and neighbors meet on hot summer days, and our pools also offer swim lessons, water aerobics sessions, community water carnivals and much more.”
