  1. water sports for children is very important this would be a great place for paid for swimming lessons Practice & team competitions. I am for it as it was a great activity in my childhood at the Natatorium & city pool. it should support itself if this is done smartly. No new taxes

  2. need adult swim night,suits optional with cocktails and snacks.
    or bring your pet to swim.Need to hurry though before the X mas festival
    takes all the money.

    • I like it! An adult, cocktails/suit optional night.

      Seriously, someone had better develop a real business plan for this project. It won’t be just raising the funds to build it, but establishing a steady income stream to support it. Membership fees will have to be required, and that will be the rub ultimately. Oh, there’ll be initial enthusiasm and support, but that will fade rather quickly. Probably the first time membership dues are up for renewal most people will realize, heck! I never use the thing, and they won’t renew their membership.

      But, under no circumstances should public money be used for this project. Not a dime of taxpayer money. None!

  3. This sounds like a great idea. It would be nice to be somewhere down on Keyser. I took aerobics at the Natatorium and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is great exercise and can do it year round. I hope it all works out wherever it is.

  4. I think the city, parish and waterway commission have enough on their plate without taking on another project. Maybe it could be set up like a country club with memberships. The first thing I would do is hire a third party consultant with no ties to Natchitoches and no interest in bidding on the actual construction. Please don’t saddle future taxpayers with a potential albatross. Thanks for the chance to comment.

  5. It would be nice if everyone felt like it was accessible! A down town location or keyser st would be great.

  6. This has the potential to be a great idea for all citizens, however, one challenge will be keeping it from becoming a ghetto pool
