A Late Summer Staycation Bids
Summer Farewell, But Welcomes Fall
By Pat Lindsey
A well-planned St. Louis staycation in late August seems like a great way to say goodbye to summer and welcome fall. The many jewels of Forest Park and other popular attractions around the area are less crowded then because some of the children have already returned to school. And when my bachelor brother came for a visit during my son’s scheduled vacation, we just happened to have a week of perfect weather.

New Aquatic Center at North County Rec Complex Open
The new $5 million aquatics center opened Memorial Day weekend at the North County Recreation Center at Veterans Park located off Redman Road. A sparse crowd was evident when these photos were taken on Memorial Day—perhaps because the weather was not real hot or a lot of folks weren’t aware that it was open. A giant tubular water slide and a lazy river are the major components at the aquatic center, which was built on the site of the Olymphic size swimming pool that occupied the site since the late 1970s.
