The Palmerton Memorial Park Association recently dedicated their large fiberglass water slide to all the Palmerton area men and woman, living or deceased, who have had, or are now serving in the United States Military. The slide has been in operation since the beginning of the 2009 swimming season but has now been officially dedicated. This slide has replaced the sixty-year-old one that was removed. Insurance issues and modernization of the pool were major factors in the decision to build the new one. The water flume Is shown to be a very popular water slide at the Palmerton Memorial Park Pool as you can see by all the happy smiles as folks wait their turn to go down the spiral slide.
