The Rossland outdoor pool is hoping to see an increase in swimmers over the next few weeks.

“Our community outdoor pool is a wonderful, cool way to enjoy the hot summer weather. Friendly, qualified staff make swimming at the pool safe and fun,” said Patti Grimsrud on an online comment.

The pool is running all sorts of program and event days for the kids.

Still to come is a movie night in the park and a junior lifeguard mini camp.

Family swim is between 4:00 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. for the rest of the month.

“We have tons of really fun games planned. We are excited to get the families in the community out together,” said Sarah Patershuk, manager of the Rossland pool.

Everyone is welcome and in this summer heat it’s great to have access to a first-rate outdoor pool.
