North Park Pool full renovation is complete! . Learn more about making a reservation. Read the COVID Procedures and the Pool Rules.

​The renovation project was kick-started with an allocation of $200,000 from the state legislature. The North Park Improvement Plan began in fall of 2016 and the renovation of the pool was phase 2 of this plan. Highlights of the renovation include:

  • Restored Mural: ​Efforts were made to preserve the mural during demolition and construction and necessary touch-ups were performed by artist William Gattis.
  • ADA Accessible Driveway: Previously a steep path was the only way to access the pool complex. Now, there is a pull-through drive with drop-off and Handicap accessible parking options.
  • ADA Zero-Entry: ​A beach-entry provides safe access for all. The pool also has a chair lift for additional ADA access into the pool. 
  • Lap Swim Ability: ​The pool features lap lanes and starting blocks and can accommodate exercise swim or competitive swimming. 
  • Covered Shelter: A pavilion offers shade and fans for picnics and watching families and friends swim. There are also two semi-permanent shade structures for additional protection from the sun.
  • Party Room: There is a multipurpose room ​available for rental during a typical season (2 hour rental/$60 residents; $80 non-residents). 
  • Family Restroom
  • Splash Features
  • Larger Deck with adjacent Guard Room
