Patton Pool Opens for Summer May 17


Hendersonville, N.C., May 13, 2021 – Get ready to make a splash this summer at Patton Pool, which opens with limited hours on Monday, May 17 and all day on Saturday, May 29.

Managed by the Hendersonville Family YMCA, the Olympic-size outdoor pool in Patton Park is a local favorite. “Patton Pool is the true essence of summer,” said Laurie Blake-Baker, Hendersonville Family YMCA member and Patton Pool swimmer. “There's nothing that says "summer's here!" like participating in a delightful aquatic exercise class or swimming laps while getting a tan. Patton Pool is just an all-around exquisite summer experience!”

Activities for kids

When kids have confidence around water they’re safer and have more fun. The summer session of swim lessons at Patton Pool runs June 28-Aug. 21 for kids ages 6 months to 14 years.

The Y is offering summer day camp for kids ages 4-13 at the UNC Asheville Kellogg Center and five half-day sports camps at Patton Park:

  • Ultimate Frisbee (June 21-25)

  • Soccer (June 28-July 2)

  • Sports of all Sorts (July 12-16)

  • Flag Football / Water Fun (July 19-23)
