The City’s Parks and Recreation Department operates two outdoor swimming pools for residents to enjoy during the summer months at Erwin Park and Lineberger Park. The pools may be rented for private parties. Swim lessons and other classes are available for nominal fees. In-season, contact the pool manager at (704)866-6846. Off-season, contact the Athletics Office at (704)869-1018.
Lineberger Park Pool opened in the summer of 2012. Designed as more of a small-scale water park, it has a little bit of something for everyone. It features a zero-depth entry with fountain geysers on “the beach,” a lazy river, a two-story waterslide, three lanes for lap swimming, and colorful splash features including a bucket dump and three rainfall aqua domes. There are restrooms with showers and dressing space. A free basket service is offered to keep personal belongings. Lounge chairs are available to rent. A concession stand located within the corner of the pool house serves swimmers and park patrons. Pool capacity necessitates the observance of sessions multiple for public swim.
ADMISSION: $4 per person/session (ages 1 and older)
