Maxwell Parks and Recreation District is wrapping up the last week the town pool will be open for the summer with a number of special activities.
Today, Aug. 8, in addition to regular activities, swimmers can dive for treasure from 2 to 3 PM, but only if air quality permits pool opening, officials said.
“Bring an old sock to collect change from the bottom of the pool,” said Kyle Miller, MPR president. Today is a free swim day, thanks to the sponsorship of LZD Farms.
On Thursday, Aug. 9, a Water Jousting Tournament will be held from 3 to 4 PM. The free swim day is sponsored by Thomas Tile Cleaning Services.
On Friday, Aug. 10, Maxwell Parks and Recreation will host a Ping Pong Tournament from 3 to 4:30 PM. The pool is open for free thanks to an anonymous donor, Miller said.
Saturday, Aug. 11, is the last day the pool will be open for the summer, as school gets underway on Aug. 15.
The free swim, from 1 to 7PM, is sponsored by Mile Hi Cattle Co., and will have activities throughout the day, including a Rubber Duck Race, Find the Water Bottles, Ping Pong games, Hungry, Hungry Hippos in the pool, and other games.
The snack bar will be open each day this week. The pool opens at 1 PM daily.
On Saturday, there will be free ice cream at 5 PM.
