Making pools fun for everyone

By

When the summer weather begins to melt its way into Gainesville, people look for ways to cool off from the heat. And, community pools can certainly do the trick. However, without the right equipment at these pools, not everyone can to enjoy them. Florida’s 89.1, WUFT-FM’s Dina Lewis explains how a new regulation expected to be carried out through the Americans with Disabilities Act will help disabled people take a dip in the pools, too.
