LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - Four city pools won’t open this summer because of metro budget cuts. So city leaders have asked for the public’s help in seeking other options.

Louisville Parks and Recreation set up at the fours pools on Saturday, hoping for some feedback.

Current and future pool users were asked to fill out a survey detailing their past pool usage and usual family activities over the summer months.

The survey can be found here.
