Have you ever lost the use of something & maybe were not even aware you had it?

The Hot Springs Village outdoor swimming pool is a really nice amenity. Almost brand spanking new! Are you aware that there are ADULT-ONLY swim times? You may not know this. It seems as if a lot of Villagers are not privy to this information.

Villagers have spoken and the HSV Parks and Recreation Department has taken heed. Sounds good, doesn’t it? Last year, Villagers asked for ADULT-ONLY swim time at the outdoor pool. They wanted time to relax without the noise and bustle of little ones splashing around. Terry Wiley, Director of Parks and Recreation, responded by adding to the pool schedule three ADULT-ONLY swim times.

In another article I reported:

“Wiley said they got a lot of heat about not having adult time last year at the outdoor pool. The outdoor pool adult time is in addition to the regular schedule. Wiley stated, “The bad news is everybody wants something and nobody uses it. We average less than three people during the outdoor pool adult time. Wiley said he is giving it another week or two and if weak attendance during the adult time doesn’t change, the adult time will be removed from the schedule.

“Adult swim times (ages 21 and over) at the Outdoor Pool are Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM, and Thursdays, 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM.”

The cost to use the pool is only $2.00 for members and $4.00 for guests. The outdoor pool is located at 205 DeSoto Boulevard. Outdoor pool staff may be reached at 501-915-0985.

The Outdoor Pool is also available for private events. Please contact Deb Johnson, Manager at the Coronado Fitness Center at 501-922-1230 for more information on scheduling a private event.

Spread the word and bring your friends with you for a nice refreshing adult-only swim at the outdoor pool. Remember, if we don’t use it, we lose it.
