Spend your summer having fun in the suN at the

Green Acres Crestwood Pool


Not just a neighborhood pool

We are a community pool with members from every corner of Athens. The Green Acres Crestwood pool is a non-profit organization that was established over 50 years ago to serve Athens residents and neighboring communities. We are a community based organization that offers a summertime retreat to our local families.

Our pool is a shady retreat that is great for all ages. Features of our facility include a diving board, baby pool, and grill for member use. Join us for fun events like DJ days, night swims, ice cream parties and the famous 4th of July parade. We strive to create positive memories that will last a lifetime for the families of our community!

I am so grateful for our neighborhood pool. In the summer, I swim every day. I have been a member since 1976.

My family loves to come and spend an entire afternoon at Green Acres. We can swim, cool off in the shade, and eat the snacks we’ve brought from home. The lifeguards give me peace of mind, especially when my daughters are leaping off the diving board—their favorite part!

Our grandchildren love the pool as much as our children did 30 years ago. We’ve had some great pool parties there!

I love it because we feel that we are part of the community now and we didn’t until we joined the pool.
