Goodman Pool is a place for everyone regardless of financial circumstances. The Madison Parks Foundation is donating $40,000 towards pool admission scholarships! With decreased support this year due to the impacts of COVID-19, the Foundation is asking area businesses and individuals to consider donating to this important community asset and help make the pool inclusive and accessible to the entire community.

Visit Madison Parks Foundation to support these efforts.
