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!

 

2019 Pool Season is here!

You spoke and we listened. With feedback from the membership, we’ve decided to change a few things for the 2019 pool season including:

  • We are now offering extended pool hours, with the pool open daily from 10:00 am - 9:00 pm.

  • The pool will open this season with lifeguard hours limited to our busiest times, from 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm.

  • Reserve the pool for your private event or party! We are now setting aside Saturday nights for private parties and special events.

  • Want to have a group of friends to the pool during the week for a birthday party? You can make a reservation online now!

So grateful for the community feel, the lifeguards, baby pool, and friendly familiar faces!

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!
— S.B.
Our grandchildren love the pool as much as our children did 30 years ago. We’ve had some great pool parties there!
— J.B.A.
I love it because we feel that we are part of the community now and we didn’t until we joined the pool.
