Make-A-Splash in a Kid's Life

Note For Northside & Southside Family Aquatic Facilities 2021:

Both Northside and Southside Aquatic Facilities are slated to reopen in summer 2021 from late-June through mid-August. Current operational plans include limited ARC Learn-to-Swim Lessons and reservation-only family swim sessions.  All programming will follow all local, state, and federal guidelines for Water Recreational Facilities.  If you are a new participant and would like to be notified by email when swim lesson registration is open, please complete this webform.


The Spokane Parks Foundation's Make-A-Splash in a Kid's Life program provides swimming opportunities to kids throughout Spokane County. Through generous donations from the community, the Make-A-Splash in a Kid's Life program has provided funding for hundreds of swimming lesson scholarships at both the Northside and Southside Family Aquatic Facilities. 

We would like to extend a huge thank you to the Spokane Parks Foundation Make-A-Splash in a Kid's Life program for their commitment to Spokane County Parks, Recreation & Golf Department as well as our community. We are thrilled to partner with the Spokane Parks Foundation again in 2020 to provide three (3) Free Family Evening Swims from 6:00pm - 8:00pm on select Saturdays at Southside Family Aquatics Facility, as well as swimming lesson scholarships!  


The Make-A-Splash in a Kid's Life program has provided swimming opportunities to thousands, but there are still more kids in need of assistance. Donate Online today to help keep the kids in our community swimming and splashing safely each and every summer.
