Deep End

Meyer Pool in Ward 14 adjacent to the Lincoln West High School Complex on Meyer and West 33.  One block from Metro Hospital.  An excellent pool team this summer and excellent maintenance of the pool and pool deck.

City of Cleveland Pools

Contrary to popular belief--the City of Cleveland pools and spray basins are not "free."  Taxpayers support these services.  And, for the small amount of money spent by the administration at these recreational sites, the City of Cleveland gets an outstanding return: happy kids and summer memories to last a life-time.

So, I really hope that at some point our so-called leaders will get with it and make the improvements needed at these parks throughout the City of Cleveland (east and west).  The money can be found as was shown in the investment at the new Collinwood Recreational Center (which serves a heavy influx of free-loaders from Euclid).  The last day for outdoor pools is this Friday, August 11th.

Good common sense RULES - it is helpful to have RULES ...these are from the City of Seven Hills

I would add the rule-no street clothes... City of Cleveland used to require a proper suit and towel for pool users and then decided that this rule was too onerous on the "poor" residents of the City of Cleveland...some of the lamer lifeguards also forgo the shower insulting...gimme a break.
