GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - It will cost children and non-Grand Rapids residents a little less to enjoy three Grand Rapids city pools this summer.
Martin Luther King Park Pool, Briggs Park Pool and Richmond Park Pool will open July 2.
The new fees are --
- $1 for children aged 1-17
- $2 for adults
- $4 for non-city residents
These rates are down from last year's --
- $2 for children
