The Rock Valley public swimming pool is a fun way to cool off and get some sun during the summer months. It's a great, safe place for kids to have fun and adults to enjoy the gorgeous summer weather. It's a little slice of what makes Rock Valley special.
Our pool is located in the center of Rock Valley. From Highway 18 turn north on 13th Avenue and go one block. The pool is located on the west side of the street.
A new pool is coming to Rock Valley in 2023! A big thanks to all who helped make this dream a reality. We can't wait for the new pool but this does mean our current pool will be closed for the summer of 2022.
