Beginning today, June 10, city residents age 17 and younger will be provided with free admission to public pools in the City of Grand Rapids. This shift in admission for the pool season is due in part to a donation from businessman Bob Sullivan. Last year Grand Rapids voters also authorized a 0.98-mill property tax to ensure that city pools will open for 12 weeks every summer.
