Irwin A. and Robert D. Goodman Swimming Pool

Goodman Pool

Madison's first municipal swimming pool became a reality in 2006. Long-time community members and philanthropists Irwin A. and Robert D. Goodman kicked off the project by donating $2.8 million. They wisely put some strings on the donation - the groundbreaking for the pool needed to be in July 2005. With that as incentive, the City and the Madison Parks Foundation dove into action. The pool is officially named in their honor.
