(SPOT.ph) Public-access pools, especially in Manila City, are hard to come by. You have the 25-meter Dapitan Sports Complex Swimming Pool, which has definitely seen better days; and the Olympic-sized Rizal Memorial Swimming Center, which is open only to our national athletes. But the city government hopes to open more doors to swimming enthusiasts by making Vitas Aquatic Center accessible to the public for free every Wednesday, from 10 a.m to 12 p.m. and from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., starting December 4. This was announced by the Manila Public Information Office on November 29.
Vitas Sports Center, which is located in Barangay 98, Zone 8, District 1, Tondo, Manila, was a P108-million project that was inaugurated by former Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada on November 30, 2018. Vitas Aquatic Center, which is part of the sports complex, features two swimming pools: a 25-meter lap pool and a kiddie pool. The pools can accommodate a total of 100 people, according to the Manila Public Recreations Bureau.
Vitas Aquatic Center is at Vitas Street, Tondo, Manila City. It is open to the public every Wednesday, from 10 a.m to 12 p.m. and from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. For more information, follow Vitas Skate Park and Aquatic Center on Facebook.
