This commentary recently came in from a Mirabella Pool regular that wants to raise the issue of smoking at the pool.
I am a North End resident and enjoy everything the North End has to offer including the beautiful pool. However, why is it that people think they can just smoke even though there are three huge NO SMOKING signs painted on the wall?
I said something to the person who takes the passes and she was very upset, telling me that it is City of Boston property and they should not be smoking. However, she also said the lifeguards have their hands full, which I totally agree with. So, it would be up to someone to either go up to these people who think it’s their own private pool and they can do what they want or disturb the person taking the passes.
There are so many little children around, plus people who just do not want to be breathing in second hand smoke while enjoying the pool and the harbor.
Can you write something in the your North End / Waterfront News to get the message that NO SMOKING goes for everybody in the pool area?
So, that is the issue. Now, let’s hear from you in the poll below.
