Condition of Lahaina Aquatic Center disgraceful

Lahaina Aquatic Center is a disgrace. I swim there frequently, so I notice the dismal level of maintenance.

Orange cones line the pool’s entrance point. There seems to be some safety hazard because the spill area needs replacing.

The locker rooms are kept locked, so if you want to take a shower you have to walk all around the building and enter through the exit. This is an inconvenience for older patrons.

The gates to the pool are kept partially closed. You have one gate open; this gives one the feeling of a lockup.

I counted nine signs around the pool all with the word “no.”

Don’t bother complaining to the county Department of Parks & Recreation – I tried after being told I was too fat to jump on the pool’s rusted-out apron.
