The City of Chinook’s drawings are dated in 1981, and according to the City, that is what year the pool was fully finished with the wading pool.

According to other individuals involved, the pool was dedicated on July 4th, 1976 and the wading pool was added in 1981. The pool was a project of the Chinook Lions Club where Bob Dolan and Ted Westin were leaders of the project. It was financed by a $150,000 Bond issue and a matching grant from the Federal Bureau of Reclamation, formerly the Federal Bureau of Outdoors as well as the Montana Fish and Game Department.
