Waldron’s Sodie Davidson Park renovated and opened their swimming pool this past May. They are offering swimming lessons, water aerobics and private pool parties.
Lifegaurds are on duty and a wading pool is also available for children. In addition to the water attraction, the park also offers a sports venue complete with a soccer, softball and baseball field. Lastly, you can bring the family and enjoy a picnic and a day of fishing. This opening season’s popularity will be a measure of the park’s future, so everyone is encouraged to come and enjoy all it has to offer.
