Would you be interested in an off-season pass (September to May) and/or support aquatics programs at Yost Pool?

Yost Pool is a beautiful and underutilized resource in our community.  

With the growth of our population, the demand for a public year round pool in this area is not being met.  

This pool would benefit lap swimmers, high school and competitive swim teams, and water polo teams.

To keep the pool open, it would not be necessary to build any new structures.  The water would continue to be warmed to the same temperature. The main costs would be to purchase a new cover and to run the facility as it is in the Summer.  The staffing needs could be lowered by having lifeguards only during lap times, since coaches are trained as lifeguards during swim team and polo hours.  

The city and the YMCA are currently under the impression that the interest in this idea is limited and therefore this investment is not justifiable.  Although there are costs involved, the city taxes and fees associated with Parks and Recreation should be used in the interest of public health and recreation.  This is an investment in improving the lives of people of all ages in Edmonds.
