We have received many questions regarding the opening of the New Market swimming pool this summer. At this time, we do not have a timeframe for opening, or know if the pool will be open this summer. The opening of the pool will depend on when the state enters into each phase of reopening Virginia. At this time, we are preparing the pool as if it will be open sometime this summer.

Seasonal Hours

The pool officially opens on a daily basis on Memorial Day weekend.  It will remain open daily until school starts for Shenandoah County in August.  The pool will be open weekends only from August – September 7, 2020.  It’s hours of operation are from 11:00 am – 6:00 pm.  The pool is open to all members of the public, but children under 10 years of age should be accompanied by an adult.  All guests are expected to abide by the rules and regulations posted at the pool.  Snacks and drinks are available for purchase at the concession stand.
