Casino Pool at Lake Worth Beach

Part of our population of Lake Worth is still unaware, that our Olympic size pool is open and welcoming.   Signage is not that inviting.  But wait there is a logo designed by one of our Lake Worth residence and it is fabulous.    FABULOUS

Before I get to the other group that is utilizing the pool.  Join the Friends of the Lake Worth Pool by coming to their open get together this Thursday at South Shores Tavern around 7ish.   Sign up and become a friend it’s only $5 dollars.  Been attempting to get the list so you could see which of your friends already supports the pool but to no avail.   When I get it I will post it.   Remember there is a neighborhood challenge in the making by South Palm Park’s Pres.  Chip Guthrie.  Now that will be an event not to miss.  Mark your calendar for Sept. 21.   DSCN0440  I drop by the pool and see who is using it as I’m a beach person but wait till the man -o- wars show up I’ll happily swim in the pool, till then I love the sand between my toes.            DSCN0229 (1)The Fire department has become a regular user of our pool.  Spoke to them briefly and they are glad they can again update their aquatic skills here.  Lets face it we are surrounded with water and they are called to pull people out of canals all the time.  I hear talk of “Silver Sneakers”  wonder why we don’t already have it.

DSCN0221 DSCN0222The East Coast Aquatic Club is now a regular user of the Lake Worth Municipal Pool.  this is a year round competitive program and to join you have to try out.     They have seven groups that come to use the pool from youth to seniors and of course the master swimmers.  The various groups use the pool from Mon. – Fri  4 p.m. – 7:15  and Saturdays 8 a.m. to 11 a.m.

    Thanks for posting about the Sunday class, I’m going to try it out! Our pool is such an asset, it seems like the City is not advertising it at all. We have such a beautiful beach casino, the last part that needs a little TLC is our pool.
