Village Swimming Pool
Our Pool: The first Village swimming pool was built by the Ballston Spa Lions Club in 1956 and donated to the Village in 1957. It was replaced by a new pool built in 1994 with funding from the Towns of Ballston and Milton, in addition to community donations. The pool is located on Ralph Street and is open during the summer months for open swimming, adult swimming and “Swimming Under the Stars”. Lessons are provided Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Pool rates are $2.00 per day or $40 per season per person. Contact the Village office for more information..
