The Hawthorne Pool began operation in the spring of 1955. The pool is a recreational gem, and is the perfect place for families and neighbors to get together in their community and make some wonderful summer memories!
There are two pools at the complex. One is a 3,000 gallon circular wading pool which ranges in depth from 1 foot at the perimeter to 1 foot 6 inches at the center. This pool is intended for use by young (under age 7) children only. All children entering the kiddie pool area must be accompanied by a responsible parent or appropriate guardian.
The main pool is a 625,000 gallon (roughly 72' x 220') rectangular pool which ranges in depth from 2 feet 6 inches at the shallow end to 10 feet at the deep end. There is a zero depth entry ramp into the main pool. In addition, there is a wheelchair lift available into the shallow water. The pool has several water features including a diving board and slide.
Effective 7/24/2013, children wearing swim diapers and plastic/rubber pants will be permitted in the main pool, but only after having the proper diapers being checked and approved by the pool staff.
