Swansons Cool Pool

Located at Swanson Park Action Center, the COOL! pool was built in 2005 on the site of the old Swanson Pool. It has 81,800 gallons of water and is kept at 84 degrees.

The pool features a zero depth entry and is 4.5' deep at its deepest. COOL! has a 36' high slide and a Lazy River. The play structure is surrounded by a large amount of water that is only 18" deep.

[06/25/18]   I just repaired some tile which needs to set overnight. The pumps are off. 10am fitness class will be chilly. Pool will be back to 84 degrees by noon.


Less than a week to go, and have you seen the forecast!? I am super excited for the start of the season coming up on JUNE 16th!

It is not too early to sign up for swim lessons and our rental calendar is filling up fast.

Visit www.albanyparksandrecreation.org/register to sign up for swim lessons. On that same page, choose "Rentals" then "Swanson Park Action Center" to check out rental prices and availability.


[06/05/18]   Have you noticed - the pool is clear, the play structure is good to go, the chairs are out and about along with the tables we have (2 more picnic tables will be added)! We're getting close! You will see kids in the pool a few times these next two weeks from schools who have rented the facility and you will see staff training soon, too! June 16th is opening day, but you can go online to albanyparksandrecreation.org/register to sign up for swim lessons or reserve the pool or community room for your summer parties! See you in a couple weeks!


Registration for summer morning swim lessons begins Friday, May 25th at 8:30am. Please visit www.albanyparksandrecreation.org/register for more details.


[05/15/18]   You've probably seen some work going on as we prepare the pool for the summer. You will see the pool clear up, the awnings, chairs, tables, umbrellas out soon and you might even see some people in the water, especially in June when we host a few schools for end of the year parties. All this leads to the question I have been getting in my messages.... WHEN DOES COOL POOL OPEN? and the answer is.... JUNE 16.


Drowning Doesn't Look Like Drowning

This is an interesting article as summer approaches and many of our pool patrons will also head off to lakes and rivers. The Instinctive Drowning Response discussed in this article is a part of every lifeguard class we teach.

soundingsonline.com Mention drowning and we all tend to envision a person in the water waving his hands, splashing and screaming for help. That’s not even remotely close to what a drowning person looks like, writes Mario Vittone in this week’s Lifelines: Safety And Rescue At Sea blog.

[05/02/18]   New for 2018, and we'll see how long it lasts with how well it goes, we are dropping the "No Outside Food" policy. We are asking people to be reasonable (there is no need for large coolers) and we are asking people to please clean up after themselves.

[03/23/18]   The West Albany Water Polo teams will be offering a clinic for youth ages 6-14. This is the 20th annual "Give back to the Sport" clinic and will be held at the Albany Community Pool (on the campus of South Albany High School) from 5-6pm on Tuesdays and Fridays. The clinic starts April 3 and runs for three weeks. The cost is $15.

New athletes will learn the proper technique for passing and catching, four different ways to shoot a ball, how to tread water and offensive and defensive strategies.

To sign up, just stop by the front desk at the Albany Community Pool, 2150 20th Ave. SE or call 541-967-4521.

[09/03/17]   Cool pool is selling out of concessions. As a result, I have asked our cashiers and lead guards to not enforce the "No outside food" policy. Please clean up your messes.

[08/28/17]   1 more week... remember, Cool Pool closes on Monday, September 4th. We will have a Saturday schedule that day. Yes. I am aware that the temperatures will stay hot into September. I'm sorry we cannot stay open later. Our staff go back to school on Tuesday the 5th. Many of them are involved in extra-curricular activities as well. We simply don't have sufficient staff to remain open.
