POOL IS OPEN


Conway Community Swimming Pool is a privately owned recreation area for the residents of Conway and their guests ONLY. The area is monitored and identification checks performed. Public access is forbidden and considered trespassing. The pool is officially open June 15 through September 15.

The pool has lighting from dusk to 11:00 PM, June 15 through September 15 and is tested for bacterial levels on a weekly basis June 15 through September 15. The facility can be used most of the year but is closed in the winter.

If you have an emergency, call 911. If you have other issues of concern regarding the pool email us at conwayswimmingpool@gmail.com.

The pool repairs and improvements are complete, but we continue to have a need to raise funds to cover operating expenses. We will be raffling THESE 4 Red Sox Tickets for a September 9th, 2015 game. You can buy a ticket for one chance, or even better, if you make a donation of $50 or more between January 1st and August 7th you’ll be automatically entered THREE TIMES in the raffle (three chances). You can donate online or by mail or ask a committee member where you can buy your chances.

You may be asking yourself, where’s the diving board? Unfortunately, there are a few items that have been planned, but could not fit within the budget of the repairs and accessibility improvements. We will continue to fund raise, but the costs of the remaining items are large, and it could be years before we can finish them. We are specifically looking for a commercial diving board (approx. $2,000), flag pole (approx. $1,500), and we would like to complete the pavilion with as much donated materials and volunteers as possible. If you’re a large donor and could help with one of these projects, please contact any committee member, we’d love to speak with you. Remember, we’re a 501c3 charitable organization, so donations are likely tax deductible.
