The new waterslide at Springfield Municipal Pool is near completion and scheduled for use this weekend.

Soon . . . it’s time for splashdown!

Children invited to register for first trip down new waterslide.

A construction crew is putting the final touches on the new waterslide at Springfield Municipal pool, and the waterslide is expected to be operational Friday, provided that it passes final inspection and favorable weather.

The first splashdown is planned for 1:00 Friday, June 16.  Boys and girls, ages 5-12, are invited to register for a chance to be the first to ride down the new waterslide, and to receive a pool  bag filled with gifts. The Springfield Chamber of Commerce is making arrangements for the splashdown and the gifts are being provided by local businesses and the Chamber. Included in the pool gift bag are a beach towel, foam noodle, goggles with flippers, a container of bubbles, float tube, bottle of sunscreen, toys and $5 Springfield Bucks to purchase snacks at the pool.

Children may register at City Hall or at the Swimming Pool for the first opportunity to slide and the gifts.
