Have you tried swimming or water exercise at two nearby pools yet?

Parking is FREE at both pools: Lake Lytal and at “T-Rec” as well. Learn more about these two County facilities below.

Please note City of Lake Worth residents: There is a slim possibility a small pool facility of some sort (e.g., a paddling or wading pool), could be constructed at the City’s Beach in the future. However, the prospect of constructing a new pool and aquatic center somewhere else within the City limits is gaining more support.

Do you have an idea where to construct a new pool facility? Contact your elected leaders and let them know.

Have you been to the pool at Lake Lytal yet?
Click this link for hours of operation at Lake Lytal or call 561-233-1426 (561-233-1427). The pool is closed on Sunday and Monday.

Admission for adults is the odd amount of $4.02. Bring two pennies so you don’t get a handful of change in return. If you wish, get a 20-visit pass for only $48.75. That brings the cost/visit to $2.44. The Lake Lytal pool is very similar to the now-closed Lake Worth pool: 50 meter Olympic-sized with 25 meter swimming lanes side to side. The pool is well-staffed and kept in very good order.

The County’s Therapeutic Recreation Complex (“T-Rec”) is just outside the City of Lake Worth, east of Congress Ave. (on the same side as Lake Osborne at 2728 Lake Worth Rd.).

For more information about T-Rec call 561-966-7015.
Entry is $6 and must sign a waiver. Passes are also available for $40 (8 visits).

There are water jets at this pool, a very nice feature.

I'm glad they are considering the location of the pool to be an important clue as to whether more or less people will use it. Using a more convenient location allows for more water features, lower maintenance as the ocean front is a caustic location for all equipment, and free parking for those who choose to drive instead of walking or biking both of which are an inconvenience for many, not including this blogger.

It would also allow for something..... anything that could reduce the amount of red ink going into that black hole in the ground. Parking, retail stores, even green space wouldn't cost us as much.
