Town Pool Information

Both Southington Town pools and the splash pad at Memorial Park are open to Southington residents only; however, each resident may bring one (1) non-resident guest.  Proper ID (proof of residency) must be presented in order to gain entry. There is no fee to use the pools. Hours are subject to change based on weather conditions or due to pool safety concerns.

Southington resident parents who need a non-resident caregiver to take their children to the pool may obtain a "Non-Resident Caregiver Pool Pass" for the season from the Recreation Office during regular business hours.  The parent applying for the pass must present a photo ID and proof of residency (a non-expired driver's license or passport is sufficient). There is no fee. Please call the office at 860-276-6219 with any questions.
