Welcome to the Friends of the Pool and Park Foundation!

We are an organization of dedicated individuals working towards the betterment of two very special entities in Chinook, the Ensign Sweet Memorial Park and the Chinook City Pool. Both of these facilities hold a special place in many people’s hearts, whether you lived in Chinook as a child or whether you currently reside here. Please consider donating to our worthy cause on our donation page, or contact us with any requests for sponsorship that you may have.

We look forward to hearing from the community regarding our endeavors and we are especially excited for the changes to come. Stay tuned as we embark on this adventure, together.

Thank you Chinook,
your support is so appreciated!

The Recreation District Bond Passed 539 for and 235 against, and we are ever so grateful to the constituents in the area for voting yes to save the Chinook Pool and Park.


Our beautiful pool is in need of some love. After 47 years, its time for a facelift. We couldn’t achieve this without the generosity of the people who love our dear pool. Many avid swimmers and swimming enthusiasts, enjoy their summers here.


Sweet Park holds a special place in everyone’s heart. Ensign Sweet, a long-time benefactor for Chinook, funded the development of this park in the late 1980’s. Since then, its been maintained by the Sweet Park Board. It too, is in need of repairs.

Future Plans

We have big plans! Of course, those plans can’t come true without the financial help of the community of Chinook and afar. We look forward to the development of these two great entities.
