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, 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 are home to the South Portland High School Red Riots Swim & Dive Team, 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.

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.
