Pool Opening Information

Thanks to the generosity of the North Barber County Recreation Commission, families in the Recreation Commission’s boundaries will enjoy free swimming for the 2021 pool season! On behalf of the communities across the area, we extend hearty thanks to the Recreation Commission.

The City will issue refunds to individuals and families that purchased passes prior to the donation by the Recreation Commission. If you do not receive your refund by May 31, 2021 please contact City Hall.
