Everything is changing, including the pool hours. The hours used to be perfect (1 to 5 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. was perfect), but then came along trouble (the 1 to 7 p.m. ...ugh).

Parents who have jobs wouldn't be able to go home, eat and go to the pool with the children in time. This would be terrible for lifeguards, also. They will be just sitting there with only a few breaks. The two-hour break between shifts was perfect for eating and then swimming again.

I think changing the hours was a bad idea indeed. Evidently, so did the city council. They recently changed the hours again. They are now 1 to 5 and 7 to 9 p.m. on Monday-Friday with lessons taking place in between. On the weekends, it will be open from 1 to 5 p.m. only.

One of the difficulties the council noted is the lack of enough lifeguards. Anyway, I am very glad that they changed it. Happy swimming!
