“Thousands of people visit the pool every summer,” said assistant pool manager George Foy.

“It first opened its door on July 25 1936 and it’s amazing to us that it’s still going so strong. We’d like to invite everybody to celebrate our glorious pool and help us give it the 80th Anniversary it deserves. This is such a special occasion.”

The day of celebration will be held on July 24, from 12pm to 5pm.
