Lyon’s Pool

I know that this council has a lot of hard decisions to make in the next few weeks. I would like to ask that the option to close Lyon’s Pool be taken off the floor. Lyon’s Pool is the only outdoor pool in our city and it is a heritage attribute within our city. I live on Ontario Street as many of you know, and I watch the kids and parents from my neighbourhod walking to and from there in the summer with their towels, inflatable balls etc.  It is a real asset in our neighbourhood and this is really the only city recreation for the residents of the Ward. This outdoor pool seems to be well used in the summer. I myself have had the opportunity to enjoy a dip in it on many occassions. Our neighbourhood has many families with modest incomes whose children would greatly miss their beloved pool in the summer. Please think of them in your budget deliberations. LP
