Pool worth the wait

The new pool is fantastic. With over 500 people on the first Tuesday night, the doors had to be closed, as capacity was reached. The water is so clear it is like swimming in Hawaii. The water quality is amazing, the water treatment system is such an improvement from our previous pool, the natural light gives the pool facility an incredibly positive ambience.

Thanks go to all of the facility staff for making it such a pleasure to use. Special thanks to Dave Lieskovsky for working with the various user groups in the planning and design stages. And especially to Dave for working unceasingly, diligently and passionately throughout the entire design and construction stages, no matter the situation in Penticton, be it politics or budgets. Thanks to all who contributed to getting the project complete on time and on budget.
