More people using La Salle swimming pool this summer

Posted by wlpo on July 3, 2010

A cheap way to beat the heat is a dip at the city swimming pool.  It would seem that more families are spending time at the La Salle Pool.

Danielle Newell is the pool manager.  She says they’ve been seeing an increase in the number of swimmers, with 400 to 500 people entering on a good day.  She estimates that’s about 100 more people per day than last summer.

She assumes the closing of the Peru pool is probably a factor.  And June was a particularly hot month.

The La Salle Pool is open from noon until five on weekends and from noon until seven on weekdays.  Adult swim is from 11 until noon.  Admission is $1.25.
