Bloomington Parks and Recreation has partnered with the Bloomington Health Foundation on several health- and wellness-related initiatives in 2023. To promote sun safety, the Bloomington Health Foundation is providing free sunscreen for use by pool patrons at each pool, and also purchased six new, 10-foot deck umbrellas that were installed this week to provide shade and sun protection at each pool.
