The Millwood wading pool is open for business as of today. The pool will be open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays with the exception of a lunch break from 2 to 2:30 p.m. There is only limited staffing available, so the pool could close with no notice if no one is available.
The Millwood City Council held a special meeting last week to amend the 2011 budget to allocate funds to open the pool for the rest of the season. The Friends of Millwood are still trying to raise the $8,000 needed to renovate the 57-year-old pool.
Donations can be sent to the Spokane Parks Foundation at PO Box 2021, Spokane WA 99210. Indicate on the check that the donation is for the Millwood wading pool. You can also make donations in person at the Corner Door Fountain and Books, 3301 N. Argonne, and Kids Are Us Child Care at 2819 N. Argonne.
