Bowling Green Parks and Recreation Director Michelle Grigore said attendance is going swimmingly at the aquatic facility at City Park.
In her report Monday to city council, Grigore said at the halfway point in the season the facility has had 18,000 visits.
The city has sold as many season passes as last year, and the sale of day passes is on pace with last year.
"We're looking to have a good year," she said.
Council also gave a first reading an ordinance that would change the zoning to a 20-acre parcel adjacent to the Community Center on Haskins Road from M-3 Business Park to R-C Recreational-Conservational.
The property is slated to be used as an athletic complex, particularly with the development of soccer fields, but also with space for other sports including lacrosse.
A public hearing on the zoning change will be held in council chambers Aug. 18 at 6:45 p.m.
Councilman Bruce Jeffers also requested that as part of the resurfacing of a portion of Napoleon Road, the city consider adding a bike lane to connect with the Slippery Elm Trail.
City Administrator John Fawcett said he would discuss the issue with the city engineer.
If the project has enough right of way to accommodate a bike lane, he will then inquire about the cost of the addition.
Council gave first reading to an ordinance giving the go ahead to the Napoleon Road repaving project.
