Pool Admission Increase Proposed - KULR-8 Television, Billings, MT

Pool Admission Increase Proposed

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS - Billings city council members will decide whether to increase admission at Rose Park.

The Parks and Recreation Director, Mike Whitaker, will propose a 50 cent increase for children and a $1 increase for adults. Whitaker said the last adjustment was in 2012 when the council lowered the youth age from 7 to 5 years old. "Prices go up to operate a facility. You have to make regular adjustments to cover costs," Whitaker said.

With free spray parks wading pools and a new 31-foot speed slide at Rose Park, Whitaker said the proposed increase is minimal. City pools are scheduled to reopen on June 11th.
