I want the pools open. I’m in pain daily and need to swim to levitate it. I could never get into the outdoor pools as they filled before I could get there and no online registration. Kids need to swim as well

Please open Grand view Heights, my daughter is a competitive diver and there is NO WHERE else to train. The level these kids are at is unbelievable, but without pool training, they will fall behind their peers in provinces all across the country, that HAVE reopened and SAFELY. The sport is tough enough training every day, and not only is this affecting people physically, but mentally as well.

The July 10, 2020 Press release states the reopening is based on financial viability, which is only a consideration now because Doug Macallum's poor financial management and ridiculous SPD, Surrey deserves better than this, and an army of residents will be canvassing to ensure we have someone sensible leading us after Oct 2021 election. https://www.surrey.ca/city-government/31593.aspx

Children need recreation and friendship. With proper protocols, the dangers if any are negligible.

My kids play hockey and swim in these rec centres. They shouldn't have to travel to Langley or Delta to have access to these types of facilities.

I think it is shocking that our Recreation Centres aren’t reopening because of City of Surrey budget issues, and even moreso that the City hasn’t been upfront about this with its citizens.

My daughter is a diver in Victoria, and I know the impact that the Covid closures have had on all the Divers, swimmers, and water polo players. She is so much happier now that she is able to train again (at least a few days a week) and her dive friends in Surrey...and all aqua athletes... deserve this chance, too! Please get these pools open ASAP!

Thanks for adding your voice.

My daughter is a diver in Saskatchewan and we understand the need for the pool to open and have seen a safe opening in our province. We have also seen the impact on kids (high athletic kids) mental health being able to get back to training.
