2010 VPSU Champions!
The First Colony pool is a 25 meter, competition-sized pool, with a shallow area, lap lane, diving well with 2 low boards, and a separate baby pool. Two canopies provide shaded areas to go along with the plentiful area for sunning. There are rest rooms and a snack bar in the adjoining pool house.
The pool is located within the Greater First Colony Park near the playground and the clubhouse.
Memberships are available to residents of Greater First Colony* and to residents of our nearby neighborhoods. Additional dues apply for pool membership, as listed below.
Local residents may swim at the pool twice as a guest of a member. After that, they must become members to visit the pool.
If the summer is as hot as this past winter was cold, you are not going to want to miss a day at the pool, so watch for a membership form in upcoming newsletters!
The newly re-surfaced First Colony pool will open Memorial Day week-end, May 25 and remain open through Labor Day Week-end, September 2. PAID GFCACA members are invited to swim free on opening day.
Pool membership is additional to GFCACA membership, and there are several membership types ranging from Full Family-Full Summer memberships at $275 to Twilight Single Adult memberships at $99.
