COQUITLAM, BC, July 13, 2020 – Effective Monday, July 13, booked swim times at Coquitlam’s Eagle Ridge and Spani outdoor pools will increase from 30 to 40 minutes.

In addition, to meet the demand and interest, individual swimmers will also now share a double lane with a maximum of four swimmers per shared lane.
