Sunrise to Sunset at City Park Pool
July 23 @ 6:15 am - 8:00 pm
Admissions go towards the RecAssist Scholarship Program, which provides free swim lessons to children and adults with financial need.
Sunrise to Sunset is a day-long special event beginning at sunrise on Saturday, July 23rd and ending during the sunset with a movie in the park at City Park. The evening will conclude with the Summer of the Arts Free Movie in the Park at 8:30 p.m.: “Raya and the Last Dragon.”
Pool admissions from 6:15 a.m. to 8 p.m. will be in a ‘pay what you want’ format and the proceeds raised will directly benefit the Iowa City Parks & Recreation’s RecAssist Scholarship Program. This scholarship program provides free swim lessons to children and adults in Iowa City with financial need.
This effort aligns with one of our department’s primary objectives that strives to teach every child in Iowa City how to swim. We aim to provide all Iowa City residents, regardless of age, socioeconomic standing, or ability with basic water safety skills to equip and empower them around bodies of water.
The Rec & Roll trailer with yard games will be available from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. in the grass inside City Park Pool along with a slip and slide, arts & crafts, water safety lessons, giveaways, music, paddleboard demos, help with RecAssist applications, and swimming.
