SAVE THE POOL UPDATES

Stay in the loop on the Save the Pool campaign progress.

save the pool CAPITAL CAMPAIGN

The Friends of Forest Hills Park Association has set out to replace the FHPA pool, a treasured community asset located within the Greenbrier neighborhood in Grand Rapids. The Olympic-sized outdoor pool with diving well and children's wading pool is the centerpiece of our 15 acre park. The pool has already surpassed it's lifespan and a structural failure that is beyond repair is imminent. Without substantial intervention, the pool will cease to exist, having a detrimental effect on the surrounding community.

In the fall of 2022, Greenbrier Residents and Pool Members generously pledged over $800,000 toward the $2.9 million pool replacement project. This impressive initial fundraising total provides the confidence needed to move forward with the campaign. Fundraising efforts will be driven by community volunteers and staff of the newly established 501c3, charitable foundation, the Friends of Forest Hills Park Association. In early 2023, foundation staff will connect with families that pledged to set up payment plans. The foundation is currently collecting donations and our fundraising total continues to rise!
