Keep a lap pool in Downtown Duluth!

There are rumors that Essentia Health’s downtown campus may no longer include a lap pool, after the planned remodel/reorganization. The aquatics center slated for Hermantown may be meant to replace the current pool. Hermantown is not a convenient location for many people who swim at Essentia’s Duluth facilities, including many medical staff, seniors, and those with special needs.

If Essentia is serious about improving and expanding its health and wellness services, it should continue to provide the health-promoting benefits of a pool, at a convenient, affordable downtown location, accessible by public transportation. Essentia got many swimmers hooked on fitness through swimming in its great adults-only, extended-hours lap pool!

To sign a petition in support of the lap pool, go to: petitions.moveon.org.

Doesn't YMCA have a pool downtown?

Yes...the Essentia pool has an adults-only policy, and all-day, into night, lap pool swimming--better hours.

Not to mention the YMCA is $20+ more a month for membership, limited parking options, etc.
