Indoor pool would benefit community, NorKam school
In response to your request for suggestions for a replace for the McArthur Island Youth Centre (‘When youth yields to old age,’ Aug. 30):
We really would like to see an indoor-pool complex for the North Shore.
There are so many multi-family residences and senior complexes to ensure good use of such a facility. Regular fitness for families and seniors would benefit the community.
Such a facility could include courts for badminton and pickle ball, which have certainly caught on as usage of the present courts show.
NorKam secondary would be able to have water programs, as Westsyde secondary does, without busing students.
The parking is already there and this addition would make McArthur Island a four-season playground, therefore assisting North Shore businesses with continual traffic year-round.
