Another short season at Peerless Pool in Saratoga Springs.
The pool, at Saratoga Spa State Park, will shut down on August 14, three weeks early, for what state officials say will be a "major renovation." No word on what the work will entail or why it couldn't wait until the fall when the pool is closed.
It's the second straight year the pool has shut down before the end of the summer. It closed with no explanation on August 27 last year, but re-opened for Labor Day weekend.
Parks officials say the smaller Victoria Pool will still be available, and Moreau Lake, about 15 miles north, is also still open. Details on the renovation expected next week.
