Great news today from our friends at the Portland Parks and Rec Department. The outdoor Kiwanis Community Pool is now open for the summer!  It's going to be so great to be able to take our kids back to the pool this summer, and the Kiwanis Pool, which is located next to the Water District and the skate park, is an enjoyable (and cheap) place to go. The staff and lifeguards seem like they are really fun too. Check out this hilarious announcement they made about the pool opening on the Parks and Rec Facebook page:

 

 

The outdoor pool s at 165 Douglas Street in Portland. Since we are just getting out of COVID, there are some protocols that everyone will have to follow, including signing a waiver form that you can get HERE.

The Riverton Pool in Portland is also open, and the Reiche Pool on the West End will open again in September.

Stacker used data from the 2020 County Health Rankings to rank every state's average life expectancy from lowest to highest. The 2020 County Health Rankings values were calculated using mortality counts from the 2016-2018 National Center for Health Statistics. The U.S. Census 2019 American Community Survey and America's Health Rankings Senior Report 2019 data were also used to provide demographics on the senior population of each state and the state's rank on senior health care, respectively.
