swimming anyone?

When its too hot and humid in Lahore and you have nothing better to do, all you need is a swim in cool water. It’s summer vacations for younger ones but for others like me, long working hours messing with evil boss. So if you want to go for a swim, how many public swimming pools (really clean and affordable) are available to lahori population? We have only three I guess? One in model town, other in defence and Punjab University which are good ones but expansive so masses can’t afford them and not to mention the membership issues. What about female population? I can’t think of any for women (ok I am not talking about a specific social class)

There used to be one in FC college when I was a student but only daddoo’s (frogs) used to swim there due to lack to care. I wish there were more public swimming pools in lahore. We do have a lot of natural ones though where you can enjoy swimming with bhoori majh and khotas (cows and donkeys :D).

So until we have a few more available for public, eat mangoes, hangout, have dinner, long drive and ice cream and ofcourse watch world cup on TV :)

    Good News!

    Lahore will get a much needed new pool (for all seasons) in the first week of July. WAPDA constructed teh pool in sports complex near Chugi Amar Sidhu with a cost of Rs 62 million.
