Membership is on PAUSE for the 2021 Season
We look forward to seeing you on Opening Day, June 18, 2021!
THANK YOU for the enthusiasm for the pool this summer!! We are currently in a membership pause because we have hit our membership cap.
Here are the reasons why we are pausing our membership for now:
- We don't know our allowable capacity this summer as our county continues to move in between risk levels; right now, we plan to operate at the same capacity we were during the 2020 season.
- The membership cap is close to the same membership size as last summer.
- Our top priority is to keep everyone safe & allow for plenty of swim time in the pool.
If you are interested in joining the pool, we will start reevaluating the capacity and will potentially release more memberships in late May. In order to be considered for a membership, you need to be on the waitlist. Please fill out the form below, and you will be contacted when a membership becomes available! Thanks for your patience!
Well, 2020 was an interesting year, to say the least, and we are so proud of our guards and our community for getting through last summer safely! As we look ahead to the 2021 season, we feel confident and are committed to offering a safe, inclusive, and FUN recreation option for this community.
While our budget allowed us to operate safely and maintain our park space last summer, we still have a number of improvements required to operate this year. That, coupled with another increase in Oregon's minimum wage, and our inability to fundraise in the off-season due to the pandemic, has led to our new 2021 rate structure.This new rate increase will enable us to:
- Maintain the part-time Pool Manager position we created last summer
- Staff the pool with 2 guards at ALL times
- Build new guard chairs and a few other necessary facilities upgrades
- Compensate for the rising minimum wage and other operational costs (water, electric, etc.)

Edgewood Pool is a family friendly swimming pool located in the heart of South Eugene.
Anyone can sign up for a membership and enjoy unlimited use of the pool, all summer long.
Since 1963 the Edgewood Pool has been a cherished community resource. It has provided a safe place to come together and learn the life skill of swimming. It is also the home of a beautiful, quiet park and a community garden that produces food for those in need in our local community. We are a community based non-profit that offers a summertime neighborhood retreat to our local families and residents.
MORE WAYS TO HELP!
Did you know that Edgewood Pool and Community Center owns the land surrounding the pool?
Which means we are responsible for maintaining the entire park space. If you enjoy using the park in the offseason, please consider purchasing an Edgewood Pool Community Park Membership to help us with maintenance. (This membership does not include entry to the pool.) In the meantime, we’re rolling up our sleeves and tackling the groundskeeping as a board. We are also still raising money for the many other improvements we are hoping to make this year. Learn more and contribute here.
Edgewood Pool is a non-profit organization, managed and operated by volunteers. Only the lifeguards are paid.
