Renovations at the Falher Regional Pool, which began last fall are just finishing and should be complete by the first week in May.
The pool, which is scheduled to open on May 10, has had new equipment and fixtures installed along with a major renovation is replacing the pool’s marcite liner with a new, longer lasting, up-to-date liner.
The new equipment includes a new slide, new stanchion posts for the Manatee flags, new standing platforms, a picnic table and bench.
The pool has hired seven lifeguards for the season with Cassidy Turcotte as head lifeguard this year.
Last year, Falher Regional Pool offered, “Swim to Survive” instruction but the schools prefer to have the Red Cross swimming lessons.
The swimming lessons are for elementary students from Grade 1 to Grade 6 and the schools participating in the program are Eaglesham School, Providence, Routhier and Ecole Heritage.
The schools will attend the Red Cross swimming lessons from mid-May to the end of June.
Cassidy Turcotte and the next most senior lifeguard are bilingual and can offer swimming instruction in both French and English.
Town of Falher will also open the Honey Capital Park, Splash Park on May 31.
The splash park’s regular hours are from 11am to 8pm every day throughout the summer and the park will close with the Falher and Area Beautification and Leisure Activities Society (FABuLAS), annual ’ “Last Chance to Splash,” event on September 3.
