Probably one of the best family benefit of living in the city is the Dixon park pool.

Last year the city debated charging a fee for residents, but the generosity of Dorris Buffett and the Sunshine Lady Foundation saved the summer by donating the cost of admission.

The park system has even setup a Facebook page for Dixon Park Pool, although it lacks in recent posts. So also visit the Parks&Rec page for the latest times.
Don't miss the August 18th Hawaiian Night (8-10pm). Later this month they will be once again hosting the Soggy Dog Day (Aug 28th). Last year reports had it at about 250 people with some 50 dogs.
