about Lowery C "Pop" Mounger Pool:
The facility includes a large pool with a 50-foot corkscrew slide and a little pool that's used for group and personal swim lessons and family swims, and is ideal for swimming with small kids. The water temperature of the large pool is 84-86 degrees; the small pool 92-94 degrees. The pool area also includes grassy sunbathing areas, deck chairs, and an area for picnicking.
The pool's tot policy states that all kids under six or under 48" must be directly supervised in the water by an adult, and children who aren't toilet trained must swear swimming diapers or a cloth diaper with a tightly-fitting plastic cover. Regular disposables, loose-fitting swim trunks, and bare bottoms are no-nos! The pool does sell swim diapers if you're in a pinch.
A wide variety of swim programs are held here during the summer, including individual and group swim lessons all week long; public, family, and teen swims; a daily pool playland that features swim toys and is geared towards families with younger kids; and Fun Family Friday special events.
Group swim lessons are offered for children ages six months-17 years daily during the summer. Sessions range from five-10, and fees range from $5-$8/half hour. Lessons proceed regardless of weather, unless a thunderstorm threatens. Registration for lessons begins in April (mail in or walk in).
Summer Swim League is a novice competitive swim team for ages six-17. Classes run daily for 45 minutes.
Birthday parties at the pool include a "party guard", use of both pools, and the waterslide.
