On Wednesday, it was confirmed that the levy proposed to fund an aquatic center here in Walla Walla had indeed failed. As unfortunate as that may be for us with families who would have enjoyed a center like that, there are still many opportunities in the area that we can take our children to entertain them. Here are a few suggestions locally.
