Schedule announced for Golden Swimming Pool Season

What are the benefit of changes made to the pool schedule according to one local resident.

When my children were younger we practically lived at the pool in the summer months. Swimming lessons, afternoon public swimming, then the evening public swim which also included their dad. Then “Family Swim” on Friday evening and the hour before public swimming on Saturday and Sunday which were great times with other families with young children. We were always there for the opening in May and closing on the Labour Day weekend. When they were six years old they joined the swim club, which we have been part of for 13 years. Over the years we have also enjoyed midnight swims such as “Once in a Blue Moon” and other activities put on by the pool staff. There was “Teen Swim” and Water Polo in the evenings. We still enjoy an evening swim on a summer night (we must be four of the five to 10 swimmers Mr. Petrovics refers to) and look forward to the opening of the pool every year. Our many hours at the pool are full of memories of good times for my children and our family.

We haven’t seen any fun swims at the pool for a number of years now, and “family swim” time has disappeared, and now the evening pubic swim is being cancelled. Congratulations Mr. Petrovics. Adults can lane swim from opening until closing seven days a week (including swim club times). The fitness and kayak roll times are more suitable for the adults that attend those programs. Your changes will only cost the community the opportunity for children and families to enjoy the good times at the pool that my family has enjoyed for so many years.
