Lancaster County Swimming Pool

Children playing at the pool    Spend the summer at the County Pool in Central Park!  This 15,255 square foot pool has a shallow beach-like wading area.  Kids and adults can splash in the pool under the pool's many water fountains and enjoy the twin tube slides.  The pool complex includes an expansive lawn for sunbathing, relaxing and playing games.  There is even a playground and a basketball court.

We wish to thank the members of the community that stepped up with offers of help to get us to the point that the pool can be opened.  We also want to thank our pool team of lifeguards, management and support staff who will be working at the pool this summer. We also want to thank our maintenance staff for getting the pool up and running.  Finally, we want to thank specifically the School District of Lancaster, Lancaster County Day, the Red Cross, and the YMCA for partnering with us to make the opening of the pool a reality this summer.  We could not have done this without everyone’s support.

We will offer daily pool admission for anyone 3 years old and over at $9.00 per day.  Children 2 and under are free.  We will not be selling season passes this year.
