Keewaydin Park Wading Pool

Keewaydin shares property with the school of the same name; therefore, its wading pool opens after school releases and closes before school starts in the fall. The pool is an older, round style wading pool and will likely be removed during the upcoming improvements to the park. There does not appear to be a plan to replace it.
