GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) -- Thanks to an anonymous donor, all three Grand Rapids pools are open on the 4th of July. Pool hours at each of the three pools will be from 12:30–4:30 p.m.
"Not sure who it is, not sure how much it was but all I can say is that we are incredibly grateful that we have the opportunity to offer this to the community," said Taran Silva, a lifeguard with the city pools.
For Grand Rapids' residents, children under the age of 18 get in for free and adult entry is just one dollar. The donation from a long-time Grand Rapids resident covers the staffing cost and operations cost for the three city pools: Martin Luther King, Briggs and Richmond Park.
"We've got the water slide, we have diving boards and just all sorts of stuff," Silva said. "A little bit more to do rather than just hang out in your front yard."
