Lake Park Swim Club has been in operation for 40 years. During those years, the staff at Lake Park have provided a family-oriented club for the residents of Lake Park and surrounding areas. Lake Park offers competitive swimming, swim instruction, recreational swimming, tennis, adult volleyball, social events for adults and children, and much more! In 1977, Art Hoch and Jud Ammons built the Lake Park Swim Club with the intention of offering the families of Lake Park and neighboring subdivisions a truly family-oriented swim club. Art ran the club himself for more than 25 years and then was succeeded in his role by long time member Stewart Esposito. In 2016, the club began operation by an association of members, the Lake Park Recreation Association.
The Lake Park Swim Club is located just off the Shelley Lake greenway trail in the Lake Park subdivision. Thus, the club offers its members the opportunity to include jogging, biking, and walking in their trips to the pool. One of Lake Park’s unique features is the surrounding trees that provide shade to the pool during much of the day, keeping the water temperature comfortably cool all summer long. Lake Park extends an invitation to visit the club to all persons that may be interested in joining. For further information on memberships, email us at LPKmembership@gmail.com, or once the club is open call at (984) 233-5959.

STAFF: Lake Park is proud of its staff, many of whom have grown up in the neighborhood and attended the pool as children. They are devoted to the club and wish to make your experience here a positive one. Two to four guards are on duty at all times for your safety. If your child is eight years or older and can pass the deep-water/swim test, he or she may remain at the pool unattended. We maintain and encourage a firm yet fair discipline policy.
