Arapahoe PLUNGE Swimming Pool and ARAPAHOE park
Do you need a place to take the kids to swim off some energy and cool off in our humid Nebraska heat? Maybe, you need a quiet respite for a picnic lunch with your partner this Fall. Look no farther than the heart center of town and come check out the Arapahoe City Park. The park is home to several pods of playground equipment, an accessible splashpad, swings, slides, and more fun! There is plenty of room for a quiet picnic for two or to accomodate your church group or family reunion under the covered picnic areas. A cement stage rises on the west side of the park where clean restrooms are conveniently located. If you need to cool off, come check out the Arapahoe Plunge. Designed as a W.P.A. project, the pool has continued to evolve and be maintained to feature diving boards, swimming lanes, baby pool, and sunning areas. Each summer the pool offers community and private swimming lessons. The pool also encourages our youth through the Arapahoe Blue Dolphin Swim Team. Come to the heartbeat of the community and enjoy the park.
In 2011 the City of Arapahoe parks department added an exciting new addition to the Pool area in the City Park downtown, a splash pad with 5 water features. The splash pad is a no admission activity and brings hours of fun on a hot summer day. It is located to the south of our City pool, The Arapahoe Plunge. Next to the splash pad is a shelter with picnic tables and grill for any family get together. As well as another shelter located with a grill, in the center of the park.
