Summer Fun & Learning

Would you like your child to have some extra fun this summer at Cumberland Pool, where he or she can not only swim but also grow vegetables?  If so, then the Cumberland Gardening Team may be a good program for your child.

  • Learn about what plants need in order to grow
  • Plant and tend gardens inside the pool enclosure

Children will also bring some vegetables home for their families to sample and enjoy.
