Make-A-Splash in a Kid's Life


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 distributed thousands of summer pool passes and provided funding for swimming lesson scholarships. 

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 2019 to provide seven (7) Free Family Evening Swims from 6:00pm - dusk on select Saturdays at the Northside and Southside Family Aquatics Facilities, 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.
