Let’s Keep the Pool Cool!

Pool season is here! Due to neighbors who support us, Friends of Holstein Park is purchasing new lane markers for the pool and umbrellas for the lifeguards. Thank you!!!

Last year we used your donations to purchase new deck chairs for the pool. Please consider making a donation this summer to help us continue to make our park better for everyone in the community.  We’ll see you at the park this summer!
