The City of Parkersburg celebrates the opening of the City Park Pool and Splash Pad in partnership with the YMCA.

To make this summer even more exciting, the City of Parkersburg has expanded its partnership with the YMCA to offer water aerobics and aqua Zumba classes at the City Park Pool. This partnership brings the expertise of the YMCA instructors to the community, giving residents additional opportunities to stay active and healthy while enjoying our public facilities.

“We are thrilled to be able to offer our residents and visitors access to a fun, affordable, and ADA Compliant aquatic facility for the summer,” said Mayor Joyce. ” We are equally excited to partner with the YMCA to offer these aquatics fitness classes to the community.”
