The Green Lake wading pool survived the city’s mid-year budget cuts and will be open seven days a week this summer starting June 26. However, the nearby Sandel Playground wading pool will be closed during park construction. The mayor released his list of cuts today and decided to fully fund all community centers and swimming pools across the city. The only areas that took a big hit in the Parks budget were wading pools and park maintenance.
The mayor also decided against any cuts to the fire department budget in the wake of the deadly weekend fire in Fremont. You can see the complete list of cuts here.
