4th Pool


We have some very exciting news to share...the GAC is getting another pool!

In July, the Greensboro City Council unanimously voted to approve an $8.2M bid from Shelco Construction to build a 4th pool at the Greensboro Aquatic Center. The new pool will connect to the existing GAC and provide 19 additional short course lanes and 8 long course lanes. It will serve myriad uses, including providing increased pool time/swimming lanes for our members, clubs and high school teams. The 4th pool will also create additional opportunities for our members to participate in exercise, fitness and therapeutic classes, swim and water safety lessons and general recreational swimming.

Construction on the 4th pool is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, Aug. 7. The 4th pool is projected to open in June of 2019.

As construction begins next week, we want everyone to be aware this activity will impact the current GAC parking lot and traffic patterns around the facility. Traditional GAC parking spaces as well as entry and exit points may be affected due to construction activity and staging of construction equipment.

As construction progresses, we will do our best to continue to keep you updated on any operational changes. We hope these temporary inconveniences will be far outweighed by a new pool that will allow us to better serve our members and clients.
