Facilities lacking

As a newcomer to Penticton, I am impressed by the facilities the city has to offer. The swimming pool is great, but is sadly lacking.

Why oh why when it was being revamped could they not have made room for a coffee shop? There seems to be lots of space upstairs where nobody goes. At least I have never seen anyone there when I have been swimming.

I have never seen anyone use the drinks dispensers either. Surely some enterprising person or company  could get something going, just a small corner serving only coffee, tea, cakes and muffins — no meals. It would be so nice after a swim to socialize over a cuppa.

I am fully aware of financial restraints, but if it was only open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. that would be great. Also, could the management of the pool consider putting into the changing rooms a very small spin dryer  to remove excess water from our swimming costumes. A 30-second spin is all that is needed. I hardly ever use the hair dryers but would use a spin dryer for my soggy costume.
