The Fargo Park District is opening their five outdoor pools for the summer on Monday, June 7 at 1:00 pm. The outdoor pools set to open include Island Park Pool, Madison Pool & Splash Pad, Davies Recreational Pool, Southwest Recreation Pool and the newly renamed Roger G. Gress Northside Pool.
Additionally, on June 7, a naming ceremony is set to be held at Fargo’s Northside Recreational Pool. This ceremony officially renames the pool after longtime Executive Director of the Fargo Park District, Roger G. Gress, renaming it Roger G. Gress Northside Pool. Gress retired from the Fargo Park District at the end of 2016 with a total of 36 years of service under his belt. One of Gress’ first major projects as Park Director in 1997 was the construction of the neighborhood outdoor pool near North High School.
The Roger G. Gress Northside Pool Dedication Ceremony starts at 11:30 am serving free hot dogs and Pepsi products, followed by a short program at 12:30 pm and pools open for the season at 1:00 pm. Pool admission is free all day at Roger G. Gress Northside Pool.
