Residents of Manila in the Philippines will soon enjoy a swimming pool facility free-of-charge.
Manila Mayor Francisco ‘Isko Moreno’ Domagoso shared photos of a brand-new swimming pool located at Pedro Gil, which he said would be free to access for Manila residents once the COVID-19 pandemic is over.
“Sa oras po na matapos na po itong kinakaharap nating COVID-19, ito po ay bubuksan na natin at libre niyo po itong magagamit!,” said Domagoso.
The Bagong Buhay Swimming Pool project, spearheaded by Public Recreations Bureau Director Pio Morabe, marks another successful project of the Philippine capital following the ongoing beautification and cleanliness drive at the Manila Bay.
Domagoso hopes that his fellow Manileños would stay safe amid the pandemic so that they could soon enjoy using the free swimming pool facility.
“Kung kaya naman po, buong kababaang loob po akong nakikiusap sa inyo, patuloy po tayong mag-ingat. May COVID-19 pa rin po sa Maynila. Kapag po pinagmalasakitan niyo po ang inyong sarili, ay para niyo na rin pong pinagmalasakitan ang inyong mga mahal sa buhay,” said Domagoso.
