Maple Grove Pool

Open late June until early September, the Maple Grove pool, located on Yew St. is a great family-friendly pool. The pool is heated and shallow, therefor a perfect place to teach the little ones how to swim! There are grassy spots for lazying and it’s all fenced in so you don’t need to worry about your little ones running off!
