PoolAlvin and Wenonah Musgrove, long time residents of Olney, donated approximately 20 acres of land to the City of Olney to be used as a park.  In May of 1997 the Dr. Monte Musgrove Aquatic Center was opened.  The Aquatic Center was named after Mr. and Mrs. Musgrove's late son.

 

 

Another addition to the park has been the Wenonah Musgrove Recreation Area which features a two playground areas (including the Together We Play Park), shelter, skate park, lighted basketball court and soccer field.  The year 2016 also brought the addition of a Tree Identification Park.

Mack Avenue and consists of a 395,000 gallon swimming pool completed with bathhouse, water slide and water umbrella.  The facility provides an aquatic experience for people of all ages.  The facility provides a zero depth entry area, stairs and lift for easy access into the water.

 

The facility features a 190 feet water slide, an 8 lane, 25 meter competition area; a diving well area with 2, 1 meter diving boards; a concession area; a picnic area with picnic tables and umbrellas; a bathhouse with showers and a professional certified staff.
