After a complete demolition and renovation, Tremont Pool in Northam Park had its grand reopening on Sat. June 10. Since its opening, Tremont Pool has attracted many visitors eager to see the pool and the new features that it has to offer.
The original pool, completed in 1955, included lap lanes as well as diving boards. The new pool’s main attractions are diving boards, a baby pool for younger swimmers, and even features a rock climbing wall and a lily pad water walk which are appealing to most swimmers.
UAHS senior Tommy Due is a lifeguard at Tremont Pool. “I think that [the rockwalls] are the most popular because they…are very unique, most other pools don’t have rock walls,” Due said.
After the regular season, ending on Aug. 16, Tremont Pool will continue to be open on the weekdays from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. and on the weekends from noon to 8 p.m. until Sep. 9.
