It must be summer as the Centennial Pool is open. The Pool Commission would like to encourage the community to come out and enjoy the pool. A number of changes have been made this year in hopes to make the pool more inviting to all members of the public.
First of all there is a brand new viewing area. The pool can now boast about the new covered seating area that will allow spectators to watch the swimmers in the shade and out of the rain! For years parents have had to squish themselves into a small area to stay dry or in the shade, this new area will make your wait more comfortable.
This year the Pool Commission is introducing monthly and season passes. These passes are available at the pool for individuals and families. This is a fantastic cost saving method for the entire family to enjoy the pool all summer.
A new schedule is place this year. For families that would like lessons, but can’t make the morning sessions, you can now enroll in evening lessons twice a week. For all the adults who would like to learn to swim but don’t want to be in the class with kids you can now participate in lessons during an adult only session.
The Commission would also like to encourage our swimmers to become involved in a swim club. If there are enough participants, the pool will hold some fun swim meets (races) throughout the summer. If you would like to make someone’s birthday extra special you can rent the pool out on a Saturday or Sunday (lunch time) and host your own private pool party. Picnic tables are available on the grassed area.
Friendly pool staff is available to answer your questions or suggestions (250 982-2488). For the month of June the pool will be open for public swimming Monday to Friday 3:30 to 5:30 and starting the weekend of June 22, 1:00 to 3:00 and 3:30 to 6:30. Check with pool the July and August Schedule.
