With summer here and the mercury steadily rising, people will choose to cool off by taking a refreshing dip in a pool.
For folks in Liberty County, they’re fortunate to have a public pool at Stafford Pavillion, operated by the Liberty County Recreation Department.
The six-lane wide, 25-yard length pool is open from 2-6 p.m. daily and costs $2. There are always lifeguards on duty and the pool boasts a three meter diving board.
The pool also is available for private parties before and after normal operating hours.
Rules for the pool include: all swimmers must shower before entering pool, running is not allowed, eating, smoking and drinking are allowed only in designated areas, floats are not allowed and no alcohol.
The pool has proved to be popular over the last few years.
“It’s getting to be very heavily used, especially since we brought in the swimming team and lessons,” LCRD office manager Denise Arrington said. “
For those looking for more than just a relaxing time in the pool, the LCRD has a swim team for ages 7-18.
The team started practicing May 22, but it’s not too late to join. The fee is $25.
Their first meet is Monday at Stafford Pavillion.
LCRD also offers swimming lessons lasting two weeks for $25.
For more information or to register, call LCRD at 876-5359.
