Children will have the opportunity to catch a fish or two as 400 goldfish will be placed in each wading pool for the annual Goldfish Catch event.

The event starts promptly and is free of charge. The catch is broken into four age groups, with the youngest going first.

  •  Round 1: ages 4 and under
  •  Round 2: ages 5-7
  •  Round 3: ages 8-11
  •  Round 4: ages 12 and older

Please bring a small plastic container or bag. Nets and glass are not allowed. **Please Note:  All wading pools are closed at 2 p.m. the day prior to the Goldfish Catch in order to clear the water of all chemicals as not to harm the goldfish. The following day, chemicals are reintroduced to Health Department standards and pools will resume normal use.** Click here for the event flyer.
