Put the focus on the swimming pool

Proposal for the Aldergrove pool appears to be more focused on everything but a pool.

Editor:

Proposal for the Aldergrove pool appears to be more focused on everything but a pool. Walnut Grove pool is the template we should stick with. Forget library and multipurpose space, we have sufficient. Use existing gym and buildings for exercise. Do not incorporate ice arena, there is nowhere near enough parking. The current ice rink is fine for now, perhaps with some renovations and more parking in future.

I swim several times a week at both Langley pools. Walnut Grove is by far superior to Blair. Steam room, sauna, hot tub and a great separated kids/ parent pool/ deck area. The opening doors of the main pool with sunlight hitting the water is beautiful.

Please stay with Walnut Grove pool standard. People will ride and drive to it because it a great facility, like I do now. Focus on the pool.
