Okanagan communities consider new swimming pool

Online survey asks public for input into potential new pool for Enderby city, rural

The City of Enderby and Regional District of North Okanagan Electoral Area F (Rural Enderby) are taking a splash.

The pair are exploring the construction of a new swimming pool.

“Our existing pool was built in the 1950s and has served our communities well for almost 70 years, which makes it one of the oldest public pools still operating in the province,” said Mayor Greg McCune on the city’s website.

“It is important to us that the new pool reflects changing public values and contemporary standards,” added Denis Delisle, Area F director. “Please tell us more about your use of the pool and your vision for its future, as this will help to inform our preliminary design and project exploration.”
