Berea Municipal Outdoor Pool

The outdoor pool facility consists of a wading pool that is zero depth to 2 1/2 feet. It contains a water fall mushroom in the shallow end. The large pool is 3 ft. to 5 ft. It has a diving well with one diving board. There is also a slide in the 3 foot end of the pool. We offer lounge chairs and concessions that provide food and beverages.

Public restrooms are available at the outdoor pool. The doors are on timers that lock at night and open in the morning. To get onto the pool deck you must enter your pass number at the pool front desk or pay the daily guest admission price. You will then be given a wrist band which must be worn at all times while on the pool deck. If you do not have one, you will be asked to leave the pool deck. The entrances to the pool and rest rooms do have video surveillance.

ENTRY POLICY

Everybody who enters the pool area must either have a valid season pass or pay the drop in fee for the day, whether entering the water or not.

WEATHER POLICY

The pool will be closed if the air temperature is 69 degrees or below.

REFUND POLICY
