​Outdoor Swimming Pool

High Point City Lake Pool is closed until Summer 2022 to complete phase one of the High Point City Lake Park Master Plan, which was approved by citizens in a bond referendum in November 2019.

Phase one includes an exciting renovation of the pool area - adding a lazy river, play features and new slides, replacing outdated mechanical systems, as well as remodeling locker rooms and the concessions area. Accessibility will be improved by adding more handicapped parking, widening sidewalks and improving the entryway into the pool. Other phase one projects include reconstructing the old gymnasium into a meeting center and offices, realigning the Great Lawn and stage area and adding a bridge across the lake to connect High Point City Lake Park to the Piedmont Environmental Center, High Point Greenway and the Bicentennial Greenway.

We expect this project to be completed prior to the summer of 2022. High Point City Lake Park is one of the oldest and most visited parks in the High Point park system. This much needed update to the park and pool will ensure this well-loved icon is around for future generations to enjoy!
