BILLINGS -

Rose Park Pool will have its grand opening celebration Thursday for the new water slide complex.

Parks and Recreation is excited to reveal the three slides, though the speed slight will open in a few weeks to fix a design flaw. The Rose Park Pool now have something for everybody including a kiddie pool, a diving board, and now slides.

"When we were testing the slides last week, we probably had 50 kids starting to chant. 'Slides! Slides!' So that tells me they're excited," said Michael Whitaker, Parks and Recreation Director. "It's been a long process. It's been over a couple years."

The Grand Opening is Thursday, July 25th. A free lunch will be available at 11:00 AM to the first 1,000 people. The slides open at 12:15 PM. And for July 25th only, use of slides will be free with paid pool admission or season pass.
