Swimming pool in Philadelphia.

We let you all know when the free, public pools opened in Philly, so we thought it appropriate to let you know when they're all closing, too. 

It looks like the closings snuck up on us, because they began on Aug. 9 and will wrap up by next Friday, Aug. 24. Last week, a slew of pools closed, so you might want to check if your neighborhood cool-off spot closed without you even realizing. 

Generally the pools close on the end of the day listed, so you might have one or two more swimming days ahead of you — if this rain ever stops.

Here's the list of all public pool closings, starting today, Sunday, Aug. 19.
