About the Pool
The Goeres Park Swimming Pool is typically open from mid-June to the end of August. Admission to the pool is free, and all are welcome. The swimming pool is not heated. For this reason, the pool will not open if the high temperature forecast is below 70°F.
Donations are accepted in the donation box at the pool or contributions can be given at City Hall and applied to the pool fund to support operations. Large groups with 10 or more swimmers should contact the pool with the date and time they plan to arrive to verify the pool can be staffed appropriately.
