Carroll County pools: With schools out for summer, here's where to take a dip

With Carroll County Public Schools closed for the summer, local pools will now be staying open on weekdays.

And although the closure of both Cascade Lake and the Sullivan Heights Pool in 2018 shrank the number of public options, there are still more than a half-dozen places for families and children to take a dip.
