The Marlbank Farm pool is the crown jewel of the neighborhood. First built over 50 years ago (and rumored to have been used for weightlessness training by NASA astronauts) it had a major renovation in 2003 and a “touch-up” in the spring of 2013. It is home to the Marlbank Mudtoads, a competitive swim team in the Greater Peninsula Swimming Association (GPSA).
The pool is staffed by qualified lifeguards whenever swimming is open to the public, typically Memorial Day through Labor Day. Residents make use of the pool throughout the day: Early swim (from 6-7 am) for those who want to start their day with a little exercise, Mudtoads swim team practice from 8-11 am, and open swim from 11 am – 9 pm (unless there is a swim meet or other special event – check the calendar to make sure).
The Marlbank Farm Pool is a great location to host a TGIF or other adult social, entertain children at a birthday party, get swim lessons for your children, or just enjoy a relaxing day by the water. There is always a lap lane open for anyone wishing to get a mid-day workout.
The pool is only open to MRA members and their guests. If you live in the neighborhood you need to be a member of the MRA to enter the pool complex, even as a guest so we encourage everyone in our neighborhood to join the MRA and reap the benefits!
