    Hello all ourdoor pool lovers, tell us about your swimming experiences in Vancouver and if you miss not having an outdoor pool near you.

    I’ve ‘shared’ this to my FaceBook group ‘Improve Vancouver’.
    I especially want to save the indoor pools.

      And so we should, Korky. Thanks for sharing our post. We have made a few edits to reflect the VAC updates. Of course we strongly believe that Vancouver needs more outdoor swimming pools, and that we should retain and even add to our inventory of indoor pools as well.

    Vancouver NEEDS public pools. I don’t have any other pools to use. There are courses that are directly appropriate to my wellbeing, Please Please to not continue to take away local amenities. Don’t leave us HIGH and DRY.

      Thanks for your support Linda. For the last 12 years, this Society has consistently strived to support Vancouver communities’ need for the health and social benefits that outdoor pools provide. We keep being amazed at how other North American Cities are getting it right by continuing to build and maintain community outdoor pools while Vancouver’s goverment, proclaiming itself to be one of the Greenest and Healtiest in the world, remains at the bottom of the list for numbers of outdoor pools in a city.

      Yes, thank you, Linda. The survey closes at 4PM on October 8th and we are recommending that people REJECT all of the recommendations and send them back to the drawing board. Please share the survey http://vancouver.ca/files/cov/vansplash-boards-september-october.pdf and our critique with as many ppl as possible.
