If you asked them, most people would agree that there is no better way to spend a hot summer day than by hanging out by the pool.  However, unless you are lucky enough to have your own place, there is a good chance you don't have access to a pool.  Right?

Well, thanks to the generosity of those who support the Alfond Pool Complex in Waterville you can have access to an amazing public pool complex.

The complex features a 6 lane, 25 meter pool; a family swim area; a zero-entry swim area with a raindrop; 2 kiddy pools with a small frog slide and “little squirts animals”; a spray pool, and a water slide pool.

And, they have set an opening date for the 2023 season.  Weather permitting, the complex will open on Saturday, June 17th!

The pools are not free to use, though.  But, they are affordable and it appears that they have kept the prices the same as last year.

Daily admission for kids is $10, for adults it is $13, and for seniors (55+) it is only $5.

If you plan to spend a lot of time at the pool this summer, they also have season passes.  They are $70 for kids (17 and under), $80 for adults, and $40 for seniors.  Season passes for a family of 4 are $170 and you can add an extra member for $20. Keep in mind, if you live in Waterville, you'll get a discount on season passes.  The passes will be available starting June 1st.

Keep up on what is happening at the pool complex through the facility Facebook page.
