East side pools and water parks offer plenty of cool options

Editor’s note: On May 20, the city of Las Vegas said it had completed additional testing on its six pools and found no evidence of staph or MRSA bacteria. According to the city, it tests the water in its pools a minimum of twice a day and normally many more times than that to ensure the safety of its patrons.

Make a plan to check out your area’s pools around the east side of Las Vegas, and beat the heat coming this summer.
