Lancaster County Swimming Pool

Children playing at the pool    Spend the summer at the County Pool in Central Park!  This 15,255 square foot pool has a shallow beach-like wading area.  Kids and adults can splash in the pool under the pool's many water fountains and enjoy the twin tube slides.  The pool complex includes an expansive lawn for sunbathing, relaxing and playing games.  There is even a playground and a basketball court (please bring your own basketball).
