Parents want to longer hours at Winnipeg wading pools

Parents want to longer hours at Winnipeg wading pools

Wading pool at Vimy Ridge Memorial Park is very popular. Walk and swim their many mothers with children. "All of my children can rest and swim safely here," said Mom Shy Pattie. She also noticed that this pool and all others are drained between 5 and 6 p.m. Many parents work until by 6 p.m. and they cannot come earlier.

Public organizations submitted an inquiry calling for longer hours to the administration. Unfortunately, the working hour's increase is directly related to the higher costs need and hiring additional staff. It should be noted that splash pads are open until 9 p.m. and free unheated outdoor pools until 7 p.m.

Coun. Mike Pagtakhan promised to analyze the current situation. He noted that the operational budget is not designed for such extra costs. "There are many alternative leisure options on the water now," said Pagtakhan.

The latest sociological survey showed the need for additional working hours of the wading pools. Many parents claim that their children are fond of swimming pools and need water activities. Officials argue that these changes can significantly affect the increase in spending of taxpayers' money. Apparently, the situation with the working hours will not change radically.
