While the Rossland pool opened June 1 and has already had school swimming lessons in the mornings this week, the area’s only other outdoor swimming facility in Warfield is still sitting empty due to delays in the seasonal repairs.
“We’re just doing the last minute repair work and, unfortunately, the work has to be done at the proper temperature and the painting can’t be done in the rain, that’s held us up in the last while with the colder, wet weather,” said Teresa Mandoli, Warfield recreation coordinator,
“We hope to be opening by mid-June, weather permitting.”
The Rossland pool has been able to take advantage of the sunnier weather of the last few days and begun offering public and family swimming, as well as beginning a joint swim club training program with Trail.
“We’ve had the Stingrays coming up Mondays and Wednesdays doing a combined swim club, said Rossland pool manager, Marlee Kanigan.
With sunny skies and temperatures predicted to be in the high 20’s or low 30’s over the next week, work should progress quickly at Warfield’s Centennial Pool.
and those who just can’t wait for swimming under sunny skies can make the short drive up to Rossland.
