Joplin raises fees for new Schifferdecker Pool & Waterpark
You'll have to pay more to use Joplin's newly renovated Schifferdecker Pool and Water park schedules to open this summer.
The city has just approved the higher fees. Pool passes for each child are increasing from $0.75 to $4.00. Passes for adults are increasing from $1.00 to $5.00.
There will be several new amenities at Schifferdecker Pool and city officials are encouraging people to take advantage of season passes for families.
A child's season pass is $56 and will get the child in once a week during the summer. A season pass for a family of four is $125.
"One of the things we need to remember is this is a quality of life," says Lynn Onstot, the Public Information Officer for the City of Joplin. "I know when I was a child, I didn't get to swim every day as much as I wanted to. But we do want to encourage families to do as much as they can with us."
Some low income families will be eligible for a discount.
