~ Kansas City Parks and Recreation is excited to announce the official opening of all outdoor pools, water parks, and spraygrounds for the summer season on Memorial Day weekend. Starting Saturday, May 25th, these facilities will be open to the public until Labor Day weekend.

One of the most highly anticipated openings is the brand-new indoor pool at Southeast Community Center. This $3 million project was funded through General Obligation Bonds and boasts modern amenities such as advanced filtration systems and accessible entry points. These upgrades were made with the goal of creating a vibrant and inclusive environment where members of the community can come together, stay active, and enjoy the many benefits of aquatic activities.

In addition to the new indoor pool, several other facilities have received upgrades to enhance visitors' experience. Bay Waterpark now has new shower curtains, while Budd Park pool has been freshly painted. Mary Williams-Neal Community Center has also undergone significant improvements including new deck furniture, a resurfaced pool, a new water slide, and a repaired main pool pipe.
