Joliet Illinois needs outdoor community swimming pools for residents of Joliet.  Many of us remember care-free afternoons of fun in outdoor swimming pools when we were children. We also took our children to a local pool to cool off and enjoy the water with their friends on hot summer days. And we learned to swim and our children learned how to swim! Some children learn to swim by taking swimming lessons. Other children learn to swim by having the opportunity to swim with family members and friends. Learning to swim is very important for safety throughout life! The skill of swimming is confidence building for children. It may also become an activity that is a life-long enjoyable exercise or even a competitive sport. 

These public swimming pools should be affordable for everyone, with an admission fee of only a few dollars. If Joliet has two community swimming pools on opposite ends of the city, then a swimming pool will be within a 10 minute drive of everyone in the city. We need to seek to improve the quality of life in the city of Joliet. Outdoor community swimming pools will definitely improve the quality of life in Joliet. Swimming outside should not just be a luxury that only people who are wealthy enough to own their own swimming pool can afford. Outdoor swimming should be affordable and accessible to everyone in the city.
