LPN Swimming Pool to Open in May

A new snack option near the LPN pool is this machine. Once an order is placed, a robotic arm moves a cup from place to place, filling it with frozen yogurt and chosen toppings before placing it on a shelf to be retrieved by the buyer. The frozen yogurt machine is housed in a new vending area near the pool.

The swimming pool and spa on the south side of the Lake Panorama National conference center is expected to open at least by May 24, and perhaps sooner if conditions allow. During the summer season, pool hours are 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily, weather permitting. 

Guests of Lake Panorama National Inn and Suites have access to the 1,500 square-foot pool and 8-person spa at no charge. All others must have an annual membership or pay the daily fee of $3. Both the pool and hot tub are heated, with covers in place overnight.  

Daily pool fees can be paid at the LPN front desk or pro shop. Those purchasing an annual membership will receive permanent silicon wristbands.

Annual memberships for LPA members are $110 for a single, $135 for a couple, and $150 for a family. Non-LPA members can get an annual membership for $120 for a single, $140 for a couple, and $165 for a family. 

A new offering for the 2019 season is a grandparent membership. Adults 55 and older may list grandchildren up to the age of 12 on this membership. Cost is $150 for LPA property owners and $165 for non-LPA property owners. 

A new vending area has been created in the conference center’s lower level, located near the pool between the pro shop and fitness room. Vending machines will offer both Coke and Pepsi products, plus a variety of snack items such as chips, candy and nuts. 

Also in the vending area is a robotic Reis & Irvy’s frozen yogurt machine, which accepts cash and credit cards. The machine dispenses frozen yogurt for $5 per cup with up to two toppings, additional toppings are available for an extra charge. Yogurt flavors rotate regularly.

In addition, a small pool menu will be available so guests can call The Links Restaurant with their order, which will be delivered to the pool. 

Membership applications can be picked up, completed and paid for at the LPN front desk. Applications also are available online at lakepanoramanational.com/wellness, and can be printed and returned with full payment to the LPN front desk. For more information, call the LPN at 641-755-2080.
