MOLINE PARKS AND RECREATION CHOOSES NEW NAME FOR UPDATED SWIMMING POOL

MOLINE, IL – Thursday, November 30, 2023 – To celebrate the 6.8 million dollars’ worth of upgrades and improvements to the once named Riverside Family Aquatic Center, the Moline Parks and Recreation Department has officially renamed their public swimming pool, Riverside Riverslide – a name that is very familiar to locals and former pool users.

Moline Parks and Recreation made the exciting announcement about the facility enhancements in February 2023 and held a ground-breaking ceremony in April 2023. As of November 30, 2023, the construction is still on schedule for a reopening date of May 2024. The project includes many updates and new features including three new water slides, a lazy river, splash pad, new shade structures, updated concessions, nighttime lights, a shared park shelter and family restrooms.

The partnership between Moline Parks and Recreation and Two Rivers YMCA will continue when the new facility opens in 2024. Two Rivers YMCA members will have full access to the improved Riverside Riverslide as part of their membership, with no additional cost.
