Grab your goggles, Ypsilanti!
Eastern Michigan University is inviting Ypsilanti residents to enjoy the club pool at the Rec/IM this summer at a discounted rate due to the closing of the city's Rutherford pool. The club pool will be open to the public until the Rutherford pool is reopened in 2013.
The club pool at the Rec/IM is open Monday to Friday, 5 p.m. - 8 p.m. and Saturday to Sunday noon - 4 p.m. Cost will be $2 per person and kids under age of 16 will be required to have an adult on site with them.
"Because the Rutherford pool closed, Ypsilanti residents had limited opportunities to swim in the area," said Michelle Owens, an assistant director at the Rec/IM. "The Rec/IM strives to work with the community and we wanted to be a good neighbor."
Learn to Swim classes are also available, for more information about the Learn to Swim program, visit the Rec/IM Learn to Swim website.
