THAT’S RIGHT KIDS! TIME TO BRING OUT THE 20+ YEAR OLD TOWEL, YOUR FAV PAIR OF NEON SWIM TRUNKS, AND EXPIRED SUNSCREEN! Okay serious though… The warm weather and sunshine is finally here and the Henderson Pool officially opened today! From June 4th-28th the pool is open 4-7 pm weekdays and 12-8 pm weekends! Then from June 29th – Sept 3rd the pool will be open 12-8 pm daily (1-7 pm on stat holidays) *all hours are weather dependent
Do you know what you need to do before you get to the pool though? Good thing I’m an expert at itineraries and planning…
Okay Step 1…. EAT BEFORE HAND!
Doing those breast strokes really burns off energy so it’s best to have a good meal before you swim. Make sure it’s not too heavy though, otherwise it will be really hard to swim (Which is like the opposite of this step by step planner)
STEP 2….. BE PREPARED!
Make sure you have everything you need during your day at the pool! That includes cash or coins for locker rentals, snacks (because you know your gonna be hungry after), bring extra towels (and if your a girl you need an extra extra one for your hair), sunscreen, sunglasses, you know, the usual. Also bring a cool bag to carry it in. I recommend something water proof. Just an idea
STEP 3…. STAY HYDRATED!
But don’t drink the pool water… Like seriously don’t do that… not only does the pool have chlorine… It probably has some snot, a bit of pee, or worse. So bring a bottle of water with you! Maybe even 2! (because you are an expert planner at this point)
STEP 4…. DIVE IN AND HAVE FUN!
Okay in all seriousness… have fun! Get your friends or family together and spend the day out in the sun and in the water! Henderson Pool has proven to be a popular summer stop featuring water slides, a climbing wall, diving board, drop slide and the Rotary Spray Park! Just make sure you stay safe!
