Per Session Admission or Monthly Passes

About monthly passes and pool capacity

Monthly pass holders can skip the line and do not need to register in advance. Otherwise, you should pre-register to ensure entry.

Why? We are required to maintain a specific ratio of lifeguards to pool users. Half of our capacity is reserved for those who pre-register, while the remaining spots are first-come, first-served. If the pool reaches capacity, we cannot allow additional entries.

Located at Swanson Park Action Center, the COOL! pool was built in 2005 on the site of the old Swanson Pool. It holds 81,800 gallons of water and is kept at 84 degrees during the months of operation, mid-June through Labor Day weekend. The pool features a zero depth entry and is 4.5' deep at its deepest. COOL! has a 36' high slide and a lazy river. The play structure is surrounded by a large amount of water that is only 18" deep.

We promote healthy living through recreational experiences and serve as stewards of Albany's public parks and facilities.
