The Community Pool is located in Harbor Springs High School at 500 N. Spring Street. The pool is best accessed off of Pine Street located near the Performing Arts Center.

Harbor Springs Public Schools is fortunate to have a beautiful community pool connected to our High School facility. The 6 lane competition Community Pool, situated along the Bluff, overlooks the beautiful bay of Lake Michigan and features a hot tub spa as well.  The Hammerheads Swim Club is proud to call the Community Pool their home.  Patrons can enjoy a wide variety of scheduling including dedicated hours for lap swim and recreational swim.  

The pool offers a wide range of aquatic programs including American Red Cross certified Parent-Child, Preschool, Learn to Swim, Life Guarding and Water Safety Instructor classes. Senior Citizens’ Water Aerobics and adult classes are available as are specialty classes.  Pre-school Aquatics and Learn-To-Swim classes are taught on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.  Parent-Tot Session 1 and 2 are held on Wednesdays.  Click here for detailed information on skills taught in each class.

Due to school district security protocols, all patrons who have a punch card or pass will need a keycard to access the school pool entrance door in the morning and afternoon as well as weekends. Please contact Lynn to get your keycards. Patrons who are utilizing daily rates or drop-ins are welcome to join us and can do so by using the buzzer by the door. The door is monitored by a camera with live feed which we can see and allow you access.
