City pools open with new sunscreen dispensers

City of Amarillo public pools open Saturday, May 26 and the City’s Parks & Recreation department has partnered with the Harrington Cancer and Health Foundation in hopes of preventing unnecessary skin cancer by providing sunscreen dispensers at various pool locations.

According to information from the Texas Cancer Registry, skin cancer makes the top five list for Potter and Randall counties’ expected new cancer cases for 2018. The sunscreen dispensers will potentially lower the amount by providing free sunscreen at:

Southeast Pool

Southwest Pool

Thompson Park Pool

The program is funded by the Harrington Cancer and Health Foundation and the goal is to make sure that sunscreen is readily available for use. The Harrington Cancer and Health Foundation’s mission is to reduce the burden of cancer and promote and serve the healthcare needs of residents living in Amarillo and the surrounding communities.
