Yes, I must agree for all those of us who have the pleasure of having access to pools and other bodies of water to swim in - we should be so grateful to have been blessed with our circumstances. By the way, I am assuming that most of the pools where you are located may likely be heated, unless most people there are able to tolerate the "cold" water of open/"unshaded"/unheated pools - this coming from someone who lives in a tropical area where most pools do not require heating year round in order for people to be able to swim in these. This - the availability of open/unheated pools - I am further grateful for.
