Don't forget, adults love to swim too!

It is understandable that Jan Arnold and other Oak Park recreation decision-makers are wrestling with what recreation programming is possible and what park facilities can be open this summer. I'd like to put in a plug for the local adult swimmers (ages 18-90).  Like Oak Park kids, we too look forward to our three-plus months of outdoor swimming.  We promise to follow social-distancing guidelines as we swim laps in our lovely chlorinated pools.

Thanks for all you do.
