Splish Splash Story & Splash Time
Join us at Page Park Pool this summer for an exciting new program that will feature a different book each week to be read "story time style". Weekly features will have a focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion. Splash time will follow, with an opportunity to enjoy our newest zero-depth pool entry and spray features along with a chance to explore our new "sensory swim bags" that are now available for use at each aquatics facility.
This is not a "drop-off" program. This program will be staff led with the requirement that all children come with a parent or guardian. This program is designed for children ages: 5-9. All participants must register ahead of time although, is FREE of charge.
