Summer is here, school is out, the weather has turned warm and the Concord pools are open. It was the first visit of the year for most visitors to Merrill Park pool on Thursday afternoon. Keach Park was too crowded, so we came here,” said Kari Jasus who brought her six-year-old son, Mason, along. Jeanette Wilson brought her two-year-old son Lucas and some neighbors. Justin Rodriguez, visiting from Puerto Rico, opted to side on the side. The water was too cold for his taste.
