AURORA | Aurora’s six public outdoor pools will offer residents a place to beat the heat starting May 28.

All Aurora needs is some heat, which weather predictors say is coming, and maybe some more lifeguards.

Due to the ongoing nationwide shortage of qualified lifeguards, hours will be limited compared to previous years, according to a city press release. The same release notes that Parklane Pool has been renovated and will reopen with new features such as locker rooms, showers and a splash pad.
