WAC (4) (Small)This 80° heated, outdoor municipal pool offers a fun-filled day refreshing activities for the whole family. The original 1942 location held a 75’ by 165’ pool that was remodeled in the early 1990’s to add many of the amenities present today. Additionally, Swimmers can take advantage of:

  • A large zero-depth area with water feature play area
  • Three options for water slides
    • Take a wild ride down our 216' flume waterslide,
    • Take a plunge on our 24' drop slide in the 12' area of the pool
    • or shallow end slides for the younger members of the family
  • A one-meter diving board.
  • Original bathhouse remodeled into the current concession stand and adjacent dining areas
  • 1993 Bathhouse large enough to hold gender-specific showers
  • Sand playground area inside the facility
  • Large deck with sun arbors and grass areas
