School’s out, the days are hot, and everyone is ready to dive into a refreshing swimming pool. Fortunately for those who live in the Findlay area, Riverside Pool offers an affordable and family-friendly place to relax and enjoy summer days. The large facility with three separate pools, a splash pad, and a concession stand has been renovated. New for 2014 is the twin flume water slide and adults will enjoy the reclining lounge chairs and increased shade offered by a new pavilion.
Riverside Pool is owned by the city of Findlay and operated by the Findlay YMCA and the lifeguards and YMCA staff members keep safety as their top priority. “We are hoping to make it just a little bit safer this year,” explains Erin Fishpaw, aquatics director. Riverside will offer swim lessons in July along with American Red Cross lifeguarding and junior lifeguarding classes for pre-teens and teens.
Riverside Pool, 231 McManness Ave., Findlay. Open daily through August 17 (July 11-13 pool will be closed to the public). Affordable family, youth and adult memberships are available through the YMCA. The daily admission rate to enjoy the pool is $3.50/adults and $1.75/children.
