NORTHERN NECK FAMILY YMCA TO OPEN THE MONROE FAMILY AQUATIC CENTER AND THE PAULINE “PIM” MONTGOMERY FAMILY POOL
Posted on: October 31, 2019
The Northern Neck Family YMCA will celebrate the grand opening of The Monroe Family Aquatic Center and The Pauline “Pim” Montgomery Family Pool on Saturday, November 9. After a short gathering to celebrate honorees and donors, the pool will open to the public at noon.
The Y will mark the occasion with tours of the new Aquatic Center, beach ball and swim cap giveaways to the first 100 visitors, and a one-day special enrollment offer to new members. The radio station, BAY 101.7 will broadcast live from the event. A special information area will be setup to answer questions about the YMCA and its many programs to boost child development, healthy living, and its involvement with social responsibility and giving back to the community.
The new Aquatic Center will enable the YMCA to help prevent drownings as we offer more year-round swim lessons and improve our 2nd Grade Learn to Swim Program. It will also offer a safe gathering place for family fun and exercise and enable the Y to work with like-minded organizations such as Bon Secours/RGH, the Boys and Girls Club of the Northern Neck, local preschools, Chesapeake Academy, Lancaster County Public Schools, and swim teams from Lancaster High School and Christ Church School.
The Monroe Family Aquatic Center will offer a six-lane 25-yard indoor pool with lane depths from 3’6” to 7’. The center is completely ADA compliant and features a zero-depth entry lane that will enable persons of all physical abilities to experience safe and comfortable access to the water. The Pauline “Pim” Montgomery Family Pool is a zero-depth family pool which extends to a depth of 3’. With a two-story double-turn water slide, bubblers, and play features, this outdoor pool will be a focus for family fun and enjoyment.
