The Abilene Swim Club is a “private members only” pool. However, non-members can swim but must be accompanied by a member. If you would like to be a member, there’s a $195.00 a year membership fee.

The Swim Club pool is the only high dive in the area now, this eight foot high diving board has lots of takers climbing the ladder. It also has a great kids slide and an awesome tree covered picnic area.

The YMCA has what it takes to run a pool, a great staff and awesome facilities. The indoor pools are great during cold/freezing weather. However, during 100 degree days, the ambient room temperature at the pool was just as hot as outside.
