Crystal Beach Pool

Crystal Beach Swimming Pool is a national landmark that was constructed in 1938 during the Great Depression by the Works Progress Administration. The pool is known for its iconic semi-circular design and is still enjoyed by tens of thousands each year. Crystal Beach holds over 20,000 gallons of water and is approximately nine feet deep.

Crystal Beach Swimming Pool Update for the 2022 Season:

Initially announced in 2017 as part of the Stellar Plan, the Crystal Beach swimming pool project has been delayed due to severe structural damage to the pool's retaining wall and filter system, which was not discovered until after the pool liner was removed. Due to safety concerns, the pool will remain closed for the 2022 season as renovations continue. The pool will reopen in May of 2023 season.
