Is the pool open year round?

Unfortunately the Pacific Northwest weather makes it difficult for pools to stay open to the public year round. We typically open in the second week of May and close around mid September.

Can I bring friends as my guests?

You bet! There is a $5 guest fee everytime you check in a guest. Children under the age of two are free. You must be present at the pool with your guest while they are enjoying the pool. Guests are welcome a maximum of 5 visits per season, after 5 visits we encourage them to become full fledged members.

Do I have to be a member to sign up for swim lessons?

You do not. We have a member and non-member price for private and group lessons.

Do you have BBQ's that I can use?

We have lots of them! We also have a refrigerator for members to use while they are at the pool. So bring everything you need for dinner and dine pool side. Weekends at Norwood often turn into a giant potluck so feel free to bring a little extra to offer and make some friends while you're feeding the family.

Do you sell any food or drinks?

We do! We offer a limited selection of non-alcoholic beverages and snacks but our biggest hit is our novelty ice cream. Want to see a happy kid? Give them an ice cream sandwhich made out of two cookies.
