LOCATION:

Summer 2021 Season
At over 80 years old, Swope is our oldest major pool. Due to the age of the pool and fluctuating temperatures, the concrete around the pool has deteriorated significantly, and is currently unsafe to operate. We are currently working with our contractor for a temporary fix to get the pool open this season.  The pool will require a more permanent solution, which we will explore in the off season.
