Press release from the City of Asheville, Parks & Recreation:
Following the news that Malvern Hills Pool will not open following safety concerns with its drainage and suction system, Asheville Parks & Recreation has planned a series of free water-based programming to take place throughout the summer titled Malvern Thrills. The department’s Rec n Roll mobile recreation van will roll into Malvern Hills Park (75 Rumbough Place) with inflatable water slides and bounce houses, games with water elements, and other water-related activities. Each date features a unique lineup of features and activities to keep it fresh and exciting.
“As soon as we realized Malvern Hills Pool would not open as planned, our recreation team immediately began brainstorming ways to bring water-based fun to this neighborhood and the surrounding community because we know how important that programming can be,” says D. Tyrell McGirt, Director of Asheville Parks & Recreation. “While this doesn’t replace all of the benefits of the public pool, it provides free opportunities for local families to beat the heat, spend time together outdoors, and make memories this summer.”
