No School Equals Open Pool

School’s out and summer has officially begun! And, in Auburn, a long-held summer tradition is the Auburn Community Pool. Our Parks and Recreation Department is busy preparing the pool for its June 6 opening.

For four decades now, families have flocked to Auburn Community Pool. In fact, it’s been around so long – with its 50-meter Olympic size pool – that sometimes I think we take it for granted. It’s certainly something I would have enjoyed as a kid. I remember when we didn’t have it—if that tells you something about my age!—and I would bike four or five miles with friends to go to the closest pool in Garrett. I’m glad we have a closer option for our residents today and am grateful to the individuals who raised the funds all those years ago to gift the pool to the city.

So, get ready to dive in! The pool opens June 6. You can find pool hours, fees and even information on swim lessons on our site. Or call the pool at 925-9956 for more information.
