The City of South Portland is pleased to offer professional lifeguards and a variety of programming at the South Portland Municipal Pool, and is open to the public.
The South Portland Pool is a 6-lane, 25 meter pool with diving board, handicapped accessible ramp and Hoyer lift. Our pool depth is approximately 3.5 feet in the shallow end and bottoms out at 12 feet in the deep end. We have a 6 person hot tub spa with therapy jets which is open for public use during all of our public use swim times. We are home to the South Portland High School Red Riots Swim & Dive Team, the Middle School teams, our in-house swim teams RipTide and RT+, as well as to a host of user groups such as Coastal Maine Aquatics (CMA) and Southern Maine Aquatic Club (SMAC). Through lap swims, deep and shallow water aerobics classes and swimming lessons for youth and adults we average about 50,000 patrons per year.
We offer American Red Cross Swim Lessons, Water Safety and Lifeguard Training courses.
Birthday Party Rentals
The pool can be rented for birthday parties on Saturdays only, from 1:00-2:00pm and/or 2:00-3:00pm. The Community Center is closed on weekends from Memorial Day - Labor Day each year, so the pool is not available during these times. Rental requests can be made by logging into your account, choosing the Facilities tab, then Reservation, then the South Portland Community Center Pool.
