With the summer soon to be coming in Texas, many will be trying to find ways to cool down. That includes other ways besides sitting in front of the air conditioner. For some, that includes pools or water parks.
However, there are some who can't be around the normal loud noises a pool typically emits when full. Lifeguards whistling to somebody to tell them to walk instead of run for example. And of course all the fun that goes includes yelling sometimes.
That includes me too, I know I yelled a lot when I was out with friends at pools.
To help those who deal with sensory issues, Sadie Thomas Memorial Park has come up with a wonderful idea to make sure that everyone has a great time during the heated months.
According to KHRD, the park and city have introduced a day at the beginning of the months of June, July, and August that helps everyone with sensory issues to have more fun.
KHRD reports that from 1 to 5 PM, normal pool amenities, such as music and other features, will be turned off to reduce noise. Lifeguards will also use their whistles less often. The pool will also have signs up to encourage those around the pool to be quiet during the allotted time.
In a statement released by the city, they hope to provide "a conducive environment for individuals who need reduced exposure."
I think this is a wonderful idea. Not only it is a great way to help everyone cool down, it also makes sure that those who can't always join in on the fun, can now have fun with the help from others.
I'd like a pool in the Killeen or Temple area to try this out. What do you think?
