and that means cool liquid refreshment. No, not sno-balls (well, that too), we’re talking pool season. Unfortunately, Mayor Rawlings-Blake’s new 2011 budget means a new, staggered pool schedule and a few less splash pools, but there’s still plenty of cool blue to go around. The admission prices are luckily intact: Indoor and recreation center pools are a $1 per visit or $10 for an all-you-can-swim season pass, $1.50 per visit for park pools with a $25 season pass, and tykes under 3 are free at all pools. The water works kick off May 28 at the Patterson and Druid Hill Park pools and the last of ‘em wrap up Sept. 5. For more info, contact (410) 396-3838.
