Huge Opening Weekend at Manchester Aquatic Center

Opening weekend at the Manchester Aquatic Center brought some of the biggest crowds in recent memory.

City Parks and Rec Director Doug Foley says they averaged more than 400 patrons each day last Memorial Day weekend on Saturday, Sunday and Monday – a much higher number than their typical opening weekends.

It was also one of the hottest opening weekends in many years, with record-breaking heat in the 90s.

The Manchester Aquatic Center resumed regular hours on Friday.
