Community Swimming Pool

Community Center Pool

The Community Center swimming pool is a 444,000 gallon outdoor pool; it is the only outdoor pool accessible to the public in Bay County.  Our pool program provides a safe and enjoyable environment for individuals and families. A handicap ramp makes the pool accessible for all users and pool staff can provide assistance as needed.

The Community Center swimming pool is seasonal, generally open from mid-June through mid-August. Swim lessons are offered in the morning and early evening; other times the pool is open for public swimming.
