GOGGLE UP AND JUMP IN

The Cherryville Family YMCA hosts summer fun at the pool!

There are a few things to remember before you pack up the family and head out to the pool.

  • If it’s inflatable, it’s de-flatable, and lifeguards cannot see underneath them, so please leave inflatable devices at home. For example, beach balls, rafts, inner tubes …etc. Coast Guard approved floatation devices are always OK.
  • Click below for a full list of guidelines.
  • There is a concession stand at the pool!
  • Please apply sunscreen before arriving at the pool. Recently applied sunscreen can wash off in the pool and then the water becomes cloudy, making it hard for lifeguards to see properly.

Location: Ballard Park – 200 Guffy Road Cherryville 28021

Monday – Friday – noon – 6:00 pm
Saturday – 11:00 am – 6:00 pm
