SYRACUSE — Only one municipal pool remains in Meigs County: the London Pool, located at 2565 3rd Street in Syracuse.
The facility is operated by the Village of Syracuse and open to the public daily from noon to 6 p.m. Also offered is “Swimming Under the Stars” on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 8 to 10:30 p.m.
Lifeguards are on duty at all times the pool is open, as well as the concession stand. Admission is based on age, with children four and under at no charge. The Village offers daily rates and multi-visit punch card passes, swimming lessons, and the pool can be reserved for parties.
London Pool was opened in 1977 and named in honor of Herman H. London, who served the Village of Syracuse for over 27 years, first as a council member and then as mayor.
Continuously in use since it’s opening, it now features a double-flume slide, high and low diving boards, shallow and deep swimming areas, and a gated baby pool.
The area around the facility offers a picnic shelter and walking/bike paths, and is adjacent to Village recreational fields.
