Councilwoman Cindi Fowler (D-14) will officially host a Kick Off Party for the community as a way of formally opening the Sun Valley Pool on Monday, July 15th.
“I want to tell the community, we did it! Through hard work, dedication, and community pride we have come together and in a very short time have brought new life to the Sun Valley Pool,” said the Councilwoman. “I will never be able to thank enough, the businesses and groups who worked with me to make this happen.”
The official Kick Off Party is set for 12:00pm at the Sun Valley Pool, 6505 Bethany Lane. It will include free food from local businesses, gifts of sunglasses and refillable water bottles, and of course loads of summer pool fun!
The pool will then be open for swimming at 1:00pm. Admission will be $2 for children and $3 for adults.
The Councilwoman was able to get the pool reopened through revised budget funding and using her Neighborhood Development Funds to pay for lifeguards and their training. She wants to specifically thank Louisville Metro Parks for coordinating the lifeguard training and working with volunteers to get the pool ready.
She added this huge accomplishment would not have been possible without amazing community sponsors: Valley Dairy Freeze, Recreonics, Louisville Water Company, French Contracting, Zoeller Pump Company, Louisville Parks Foundation, Chick-fil-a, Meijer, LG&E, Khalil’s, Lowe’s, Foster Hydraulics, and all of the fantastic members of the community who stepped up to donate their time and resources to the cause.
“If nothing else, this effort shows people care about the quality of life things offered in our council districts and community,” says Fowler. “Far too often, we take the easy way to find a financial solution instead of asking for help when needed. The people of our community are ready to help us if we will let them know what is needed.”
