Shipe Pool to be open for Summer 2012

Last year, the city faced a significant budget deficit and proposed cuts that would have closed Shipe Pool permanently. Is is only because of incredibly strong advocacy for central neighborhood parks and pools that the funding for Shipe was restored and we will have our neighborhood pool again this year! The budget crunch has not gone away, and we still need to work with the city to find a way to sustain needed funding for our neighborhood parks, pools, and community resources. For now though, let’s enjoy another season of cool water at Shipe Pool! The pools at Shipe Park will be open to the public on the following schedule:
