so expensive entrance fee

Since the start of summer vacation last week, my son swims almost everyday at the olympic sized pool of Philippine Sports Complex (formerly called ULTRA). He used to be a member of a swim club that trains at the said pool, Saturday and Sunday morning, when he was in 1st grade.

The pool has gone under major renovation for months. When it opened again I was shocked with the increase on entrance fee. They're now charging 60 pesos for kids and adults.  

Philippine peso

Pool fee was just, more or less, 40 pesos before the renovation. The only obvious difference with the before and after renovation are they added a more comfortable lifeguard station (no lifeguard all the time!) and fixed the diving pool (not open to the public anyway), so why the 50% increase on entrance fee??
