Rossland's Pool is 85 this summer
Rossland’s outdoor pool is open, and will celebrate its 85th birthday this August. This community amenity was built by volunteers and first opened on August 7, 1932. To see a short video made five years aqo for its 80th birthday, with interesting details about the pool’s history, click this link.

Recently, there have been mutterings at City Hall about the pool nearing the end of its functional life — sad news for many Rosslanders. Can anything be done to save or replace our pool? Does Rossland need another volunteer pool-building blitz? Would that even be possible these days? Or is it time to begin applying for any grants that might help? Time for thinking caps.
