Spokane Parks and Recreation splash pads will open at 9 am beginning tomorrow, adding two additional hours. Closing time remains 8 pm. There are 17 splash pads located throughout the City and there is no charge to use them. A complete list is available at https://my.spokanecity.org/recreation/aquatics/splash-pads/.
“Extending the hours is one way the City can help make sure everyone has a little extra relief from the heat,” said Spokane Mayor David Condon. “Summer weather is in full swing and we want to encourage people to use City aquatics facilities.”
As a reminder for those looking to beat the heat, the Parks and Recreation Division is partnering with the Spokane Firefighters Union (Local 29) to host the first-ever free week of swimming. The free swim days will be offered at various City pools beginning today and run through July 11, between 1 and 4 pm. Additionally, Spokane firefighters will be at the various pools with an antique fire truck and fire gear for kids to view and explore.
The Free swim schedule is as following: July 6 – 11, 1:00 – 4:00 pm.
