It’s been a hot month and Vancouver’s outdoor pools will be opening this weekend.
With summer coming earlier each year, members of the Vancouver Society for the Promotion of Outdoor Pools say they’d like to see the pools open earlier next year.
Chair Margery Duda says she’d also like the Mount Pleasant Pool rebuilt.
“People in the community are asking about it. I’ve got children who are 12 years old coming up saying
‘I remember that pool, that was my favourite thing about summer and now it’s gone'”
Park Board chair Sarah Kirby-Young says the board is planning an aquatic study to determine where Vancouverites want more pools.
But advocates want the pool replaced now because the land has already been allocated in the community.
