Adopt a Duck, Create a Wave

The Rockville Recreation and Parks Foundation is on a mission to get kids of all ages outside and active by creating an epic aquatic playground in Rockville.

On July 19th, the Foundation will launch 5,000 rubber ducks into the pool at the Rockville Swim and Fitness Center. The first 10 ducks to be randomly plucked from the water will win great prizes, including the grand prize of $1,000.

This first ever Rockville Rubber Ducky Derby aims to raise $25,000 to purchase aquatic amenities (like zip lines into the water, poolside basketball hoops, etc.) for the soon-to-be renovated outdoor pools at the Rockville Swim Center.  This City recreation facility is the most heavily used in Rockville.  Later this summer, the outdoor pools will get a much needed facelift, thanks to the City investing $10 million in the project.

Join in the fun on July 19th. The duck derby will take place at 6 pm. Anyone who adopts one or more ducks will get free admission to the outdoor pool at the Rockville Swim and Fitness Center (355 Martins Lane in Rockville) after 4 pm on the day of the raffle.

The winners will be announced at the event but do not need to be present to win.

After the duck derby, the rubber ducks will be reused by another organization.
