There are already many wading pools for young children in the NW and this pool provides swimming/play opportunities for older children

My son and nephews love this pool. They are at the age where diving off these boards is the most fun they can have at the pool!

The Dive tank has always and will continue to always be the best place for children to play. People meet there an always have a wonderful time, no one ever has a bad time at the swimming pool!

The diving tank is absolutely necessary for swimming lessons and to prepare children for dealing with swimming in deeper water depths (oceans, lakes). A shallow wading pool, while nice for very young children, can be accomplished in one's backyard for little expense, or could somehow be encorporated into the SIlver Spring pool's design without eliminating the diving tank. I would be curious to know where all the kids taking lessons at the SS pool will now have to travel to in order to receive proper training, if this plan goes through.

A diving pool is more useful to more people than a wading pool. Perhaps a wading pool can be put in somewhere else.

We need to keep places for teens to go and do outside to keep them active and not idle.

I have teen and preteen kids, they use the dive pool a lot over last year. It is unique in the city and a great place for young teens to hang out in the summer. We have lots of wading pools.
