Oliver and I had a regular Wednesday night gig at the CARI swimming pool all winter long. We were planning to get back into the routine tonight, but found, to our dismay, that the leisure pool is closed for swimming lessons until 8:00 p.m. The silver lining is that from 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. the leisure pool is open and the rate is reduced to $2.00 a person; a little too late for our purposes, unfortunately, but a good deal if you can make it.
The situation improves in a couple of weeks; until then, the pool is open around supper time on Mondays and Fridays and over the weekend.
The CARI staff person I talked to on the phone was super-nice.
hey! i’m that ‘supernice’ cari employee that was chatting with you tonight! i hope you’ll join us after the lessons end on the eighth of June…but i do have some sad news:: starting JUly 6th, we’re goingto have more Wednesday evening swim lessons. that is, unless there isn’t a lot,and then maybe we’ll be able to have at least some of the pool open. unfortunately, being afront desk worker, we’re kept in the dark as much as teh public is regarding schedules! i’ll make a comment on yoru page as soon as i know!
glad you enjoy our pool,
Recently I started the Waterworks class on Tues & Thurs (primarily for people with Arthritis) and the aquajogging on Friday a.m. I not a fan of water, bathing suits, or public change rooms. I must say I have been very impressed with all the staff at CARI. As well it is an amazing facility, very clean and well designed. On Tuesdays when we have our class the rest of the pool has kid’s swimming classes, and the bluefins are meeting too. It all seems to work seamlessly.
I highly recommend the CARI pool and it’s programs to anyone — even if you are not a water person!!
