I am a lifestyle blogger who lives on a budget. I share how I save or use coupons in everything I do. I don't like to pay full price for anything. This reflects in everything I do from creating simple DIY projects around the home and garden to making sure my family and dogs have everything they need.
One way my family likes to stay cool in the summer is by visiting the city pool. It is open only through the week days. I am not sure why they don't open on the weekends. As I am sure that is when most families would swim at the pool together.
My boyfriend do not swim as long as the teens. My boyfriend freezes to quickly in cold water. The city pool is kept cold. I like swimming when my body is swelling. It is a way to reduce my swelling. It feels good. I last about an hour or less before the cold starts affecting my bad leg causing. I know that is time to get out. Otherwise my leg will free up or cramp up and not work right. Someone would have to help me out of the pool.
I was trying to take a picture of my daughter getting in the pool. However, some kid thought it would be funny to interrupt and mess up the photo take. He was successful. As she was literally right behind him. I was able to get a shot of him instead. He kept waving his arms and would not move till I took a photo of him.
Instead I got a funny face when my daughter emerged from the pool. She refused to get back out and allow me to try to take anymore pictures. One was enough for her.
The city pool does have a slide and a kiddie pool off to the side. You must go through the main pool to access the kiddie pool. Parents of children not swimming, must still pay to get in to take their kids to the kiddie pool.
The city pool does offer a season pass. Daily admission is $3.00 per person.
Individual passes are $60.00 Family passes (Up to 4) cost $120.00. Costing $10 for each family member after.
Do you have a city pool in your area? If not, how do you keep cool?
