As a way to enjoy both the summer and Algonquin Park, Councilwoman Mary C. Woolridge (D-3) is offering free swimming at the Algonquin Pool on Mondays and Thursdays for the remainder of July.
“This is my way of saying thank you to the community for showing everyone that Algonquin Park is a place of pride. Earlier this year, we asked the community to help us finding the staff needed to open up Algonquin pool. So now, come and enjoy a swim on District 3,” says Woolridge.
On Mondays and Thursdays for the remaining weeks of July, it will be free admission to the first 50 people who want to come and swim at the pool. There is no age requirement however younger smaller children should be accompanied by a parent or adult guardian
Working with Metro Parks and Recreation, Councilwoman Woolridge has allocated funding from her District 3 Neighborhood Development funds to cover the costs.
The pool is open Monday through Saturday from 11:00am to 4:00pm. Closed on Tuesdays. The pool is located in Algonquin Park at 1614 Cypress St.
