Wausau pools offer free swimming for kids 17 years of old and younger during the afternoon.
The Wausau Noon Optimist Club sponsors the event. It allows children who might not otherwise be able to afford an afternoon of swimming the chance to check out city pools and the Marathon Park Splash Pad. Here is the information provided by the Wausau/Marathon County Parks Department:
"Free Swim for Youth" week July 23, through July 26, from 1 PM to 6 PM for ages 17 years and younger.
Wausau outdoor pool locations include Kaiser Pool at 900 E Bridge Street, Memorial Pool at 500 Memorial Park Road (off Sturgeon Eddy Road) and Schulenburg Pool at 1531 Summit Drive (behind Thomas Jefferson Elementary School). The Splash Pad is located in Marathon Park at 1201 Stewart Avenue.www.ci.wausau.wi.us/Home/Announcements
