Pool Information

Welcome to the Watkins Glen Central School pool website.


General Information

There will be no public swim when school is not in session (ie; vacations, holidays, school closings/cancellations).

School district functions may override public swim sessions at any time.

Certified, district trained and approved, lifeguards are on duty whenever the pool is in use.



Hours/dates are subject to change in order to ensure availability for district and student centered activities. Every attempt will be made to minimize changes to the public swimming schedule.

The pool will be closed on school holidays and on days that school is closed, delayed, or let out due to inclement weather (or weather advisories are issued in our school district area). Student lifeguards work the swimming pool area and their safety is a priority. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause for the community.


*Changes will be posted on our webpage and on the field house door as early as possible.

The pool is used for a unique K-12 instructional program, interscholastic athletics, community swim programs, adult education courses offered by BOCES, and the community. The community use of the facility includes, but is not limited to, swimming for fitness, medical rehabilitation, and family swim nights. The district is pleased to offer Watkins Glen students and community members the opportunity to be involved in an activity that fosters lifetime health and fitness.
