The Ross Park Aquatic Complex will officially mark the opening of its new concession building July 9. 

At 5:30 p.m., City of Pocatello officials will be joined by the Pocatello Chiefs to cut the ribbon on the new building. With the new structure, the Complex’s concessionaire, Ross Park Drive Inn, is now able to serve some of their diner’s favorite dishes including taco spaghetti, burgers, fries, tacos, and more. 

“We’re very excited to be able to provide the full Ross Park Drive Inn menu to Ross Park Aquatic Complex patrons right here on-site,” said John Banks, Parks and Recreation Director. “We would like to thank the City Council for providing staff the resources to build the new concessions facility. I would also like to commend our in-house staff for their hard work and expertise in building a fantastic amenity for the community.”  

In honor of the grand opening, the Ross Park Aquatic Complex is offering half-price admission from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Price will be free for children under 1-year-old, $1 for 1 to 6-years-old, $2.50 for 7 to 17-years-old, $3 for 18 to 59-years-old, and $2 for over 60-years-old. 

The previous concession area at the Ross Park Aquatic Complex is now available to residents as a private rental area for birthday parties, family reunions, or other types of small gatherings. It features a private picnic area with seating for 40 people and access to a kitchen area and counter space.
