In order to use the Panorama pool, one has to drive to it. Seniors would welcome a pool nearby to avoid that. It would also be a wonderful place for young people to be able to walk to and enjoy some healthy exercise and socializing. Qualicum Beach has a great pool (Raven Song) right in the village. Like Panorama, it is reaching it’s capacity. People from Parksville drive there to use it, but are now putting forward a porposal to get a pool of their own rather than having the one in Qualicum expanded. There are government grants available to encourage developing recreational facilities.
