Built in 1933, and newly renovated in 2020, the main pool is one of largest in the country holding over 1,300,000 gallons of water, or over 3 Olympic Sized Swimming Pools. The main pool offers a 10 lane – 50 meter course and a 6 lane – 25 yard course available for lap swimming at varying stages of the day. The included diving well features a 1-meter and 3-meter diving board.  For the younger swimmers, there is a zero-depth wading pool with play slide and a 2-ft deep Junior Pool. The main pool has a large spiral slide set. Separate men’s and women’s locker rooms are available to secure your belongings, which have lockers, showers, changing stalls, and restrooms. The pools are staffed daily by Red Cross certified lifeguards and managers.

Numerous sun decks and lounge chairs are spaced around the pools for your comfort, along with tables and umbrellas for periodic breaks from the summer sun. Other than casual swimming and sun bathing, additional activities offered during the summer are early morning lap swimming for adults, swim team, swim lessons for children and adults, water aerobics, and lifeguard training.

Concessions available in the Beach Stand/Snack Shack, serving hot food, snacks, candy, ice-cream, Coca-Cola products, and alcoholic beverages.  Have lunch (maybe enjoy a famous Rivi Grilled Cheese) in beach stand after a swim, or when visiting our South Park playground.
