Notes from Town Square: The pool is the place to be

 

November 15, 2017



The Green River Recreation Center has a vast array of fun things to do, even in the winter.

One of the greatest assets in our facility is the pool. The 210,000 gallon pool, with its L-shape, can facilitate divers, lap swimmers, and recreational swimmers all at the same time. Also offered at our pool are water aerobics classes for all, not to mention the special activity days which are scheduled throughout the month.

A great full-body workout can be accomplished by swimming laps; this is easier on the joints than running or lifting and has more calorie burning and cardiovascular benefits. For those who want to swim recreationally, we offer water basketball, a 1-meter diving board, two monsoon slides, and a kiddie slide.

Once a month we have the WIBIT, an in pool inflatable obstacle course that features a ramp, bridge, balance beam, and a slide at the end. The ice berg is a mountain like climbing obstacle for the kids to climb up and slide down as many times as they can on the first Saturday of every month. Float time is a fun time for all families and kids that come in, we have a turtle and a log for the kids to climb on. There are also float tubes to use at your leisure during our float times. Check out dates and times in our brochure, at our facility, and online at the cityofgreenriver.org website.

Stop in and enjoy the amenity, we have daily admission rates or you could take advantage of the great pricing with a membership to the Green River Recreation Center. Starting November 20th and going through December 3rd we are having a promotional 10% off all Annual Memberships.

There are so many great activities to do in the pool, whether it’s a school field trip, birthday party, an overall body workout, or a family wanting to play in the pool. We welcome all types of groups and individuals. We look forward to seeing everyone in our facility and especially having fun in our pool.
