 South Portland Hot Waters -
Community Fundraiser to replace the hot tub


The City of South Portland is pleased to offer professional lifeguards and a variety of programming at the South Portland Municipal Pool and Willard Beach. Both are open to the public.

The South Portland Pool is a 6-lane, 25 meter pool with diving board and handicapped accessible ramp. Our pool depth starts out at 3.5 feet in the shallow end and bottoms out at 12 feet in the deep end. We are home to the South Portland High School Boys and Girls Swim Teams, as well as to a host of user groups and about 50,000 patrons per year.

The pool is open Monday through Friday from 6am to 9pm. Weekend hours fluctuate with the season.

We offer American Red Cross Swim Lessons, Water Safety and Lifeguard Training courses.

Please contact Aquatic Supervisor Patrick McArdle with any questions. You can also reach the SP Community Center front desk at 767-7650.
