Our Pools

We have two beautiful pools.  The large main pool  is 25 yards long with shallow and deep ends and is heated throughout the season. In a sheltered, enclosed area you will find  a shallow wading pool where toddlers love to splash. The main pool has a slide and two diving boards (only the low dive available for the 2021 season) and is perfect for family fun and lane swimming. The pool is equipped with starting blocks as we train for, and host competitive swimming events (no competitive events for 2021 season). The swimming pools are protected from the wind and surrounded with comfortable relaxing chairs.  A grassy area provides some variety for play.
