Yes, it's still cool outside, but if you think "pool" now, you'll save yourself a few bucks. The first deadline for getting a cheaper membership to the Belmont Hills or Ardmore Avenue Pools is Friday, April 19. We're talking about Lower Merion and Narberth residents. There are a few memberships still available for non-Township residents at both pools. At Belmont Hills, the price for a full seaon pass/families up to 3, is $329 until Friday, and $362 after. At the Ardmore pool, the same family pass is $71 this week and $78 afterward. All the rates are the same as last years, said township spokesman Thomas J. Walsh.
So put on that coconut-smelling sunscreen, make sure last year's swimsuits still fit the kids, and get in your membership application. For more information, visit the township pools web page.
