Visiting the Beacon Pool- For the summer of 2021, the Beacon Recreation Department has changed its admission policy for the Beacon Pool.
- 1. We will have multiple 2-hour swim sessions 7 days a week.
- 2. Walk up paid admission will no longer be available the day you come. We are asking pool users reserve their swim time in advance. We believe this will provide a much more enjoyable swim experience and easier check in process.
