  1. Mary,

    Do you know why the weekend hours for the Pier Pool are so limited? Seems counter intuitive that weekdays would offer longer pool hours than the weekend days. It is such a nice pool and yet the resource seems very under utilized between the total time the pool up and running each summer and then limited access on the weekends.
