Chuck Barthuly of the Better Billings Foundation along with over 500 families from Harvest Church, the City of Billings, First Interstate Bank, T & E, Wells Fargo Bank and many other supporters have broken ground on a new public swimming pool project 1/3 mile off Airport Road on Aronson Avenue and Caravan Avenue.  They are calling it Sahara Park.  Information gleaned from the website and my interview with Chuck it looks like a fantastic opportunity for the community.

Listen to my interview here:

As Chuck said, more funds are needed to complete the project and he is planning on selling annual passes for the pool as soon as the internet infrastructure is in place.

So what do you think? Is a community pool on the west end something you and your family would enjoy in the sweltering summer months. We’d love to hear your feedback!
