City Council Votes to Increase Fee at Rose Park Pool

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

The Billings City Council decides to increase admission at Rose Park Pool on Monday night.

During the meeting, Parks and Recreation Director Mike Whitaker proposed a 50-cent increase for children, and a $1 increase for adults.

That is the rate increase which will go into effect with no*change to waterslide fees.

The last adjustment in admission rates was in 2010.

"Prices go up to operate a facility. You have to make regular adjustments to cover costs," says Mike Whitaker, Director of Billings Parks and Rec.

Whitaker says the proposed increase is minimal.

Rose Park has free spray parks, wading pools, and a new 31-foot speed slide.

City pools are scheduled to open on June 11th.
