What are the Plywood structures near the stands?
Are swim diapers allowed for the toddlers in the social pool?
Dave, Those structures serve as temporary housing for displaced ghosts. They also keep people from using the stairs until the terrace is completed. The terrace can not be opened until the steel safety railing arrives and is installed. Last I heard, assuming a good inspection today, we will open Sunday w/o access to the terrace.Jim
Curious about if the answer still stands about swin diapers being allowed in social pool. I asked a few months ago and the answer was yes at managers discretion, so I hope that discretion in yes :)
Diapers, that's insane.
I for one will never go in the social pool if there are kids with diapers on. They were not allowed in the tank pool. Therefore, why would they be allowed in the social pool?
And just as I feared, there was an "accident" yesterday in the social pool which forced a closure. What a "waste" of a good pool for little kids. The decision to allow diapered children really should be reconsidered.
They were not allowed in the tank pool because it shared the same water/filtration system as the main pool before. They should be allowed in the social pool as it is small enough that if there happened to be an "accident" the pool would be easy to clean through filtration.-Former Overlee Manager
Nice work everyone on the new pools. We all need to keep in mind that the board is comprised of volunteers who took on a massive project for all of us. A few week's delay will soon fade into memory as we enjoy the new facilities!
Curious to know why the new baby pool is so small. It's absolutely tiny. Seems like almost a waste of space at that size. Was that so it would be a deterrent to older kids during adult swim? One can't even play in an inflatable in that pool.
I am even more concerned about the lack of shade at the baby pool. Babies under six months can not wear sunblock and need to stay cool. They are not supposed to go in chlorine either. So, when you have a small child and a baby, no shade poses a problem. Why can't two portable, pop up tents like the one in front of the pump house be put in the baby pool area?
My wife and are in our early 50s, and we want to step on the sprayers at the social pool as we walk by. We can't imagine that seven year olds are going to be able to restrain themselves. Why are the sprayers there, if not to be played with? It almost amounts to an attractive nuisance
I second the comment about shade at the baby pool. The new location of the baby pool gets full sun for almost the entire day. It was mentioned that this year things would be assessed and then changed for next year, but really, can't we get a tent or something? The water was like at hot tub at 10am today. If people don't want babies with diapers in the social pool we need more shade!
look nice. The new location of the baby pool gets full sun for almost the entire day. It was mentioned that this year things would be assessed and then changed for next year,
