Albany's one city pool is open for business

By Jennifer Emert - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) – More than 100 kids have been swimming at Carver Pool in the last week. The pool, with new safety standards, is open every afternoon except Wednesday and Saturday.

 

 

This year the pool is giving all students a swim test and color coded bands to keep students in the right area of the pool according to their swimming ability.

 

"We give each kid a wrist band, a green band pretty much means you're a strong swimmer, you can swim pretty much anywhere in the pool. We give yellow bands to those that can swim, but really aren't that strong so we really don't let them go out of five or six feet and then we have our special group we give red band, who can not swim," said Lifeguard Khadijah Ali.

No one under three is allowed in the pool and students must have a form filled out by their parents in order to use the pool. Prices are just a quarter for kids under 12 and 13 and old are 50 cents.

The pool is also planning adult Water Aerobics starting Tuesday evenings at 7:15 PM. For more information you can contact Carver Pool.
