The City of Newton is excited to announce the re-opening of Gath Pool for Summer 2024! The renovation project has added amenities including a new 8-lane lap pool, family friendly recreation pool, splash pad, diving boards, water slide, shade structures, gender neutral restrooms, fully accessible bathhouse and much more.

Gath Pool Opening Day: Monday, June 24th

The pools and building will be open for use.  The splashpad surfacing requires additional time for curing and will open as soon as our contractor gives us the green light.

  • Week 1 will follow a soft opening schedule as our lifeguards are finishing up their school year. Operating hours will be: M-F: 4pm-Dusk, Saturday 10am-6pm, Sunday 11am- 6pm
  • Week 2 (July 1) will run on the regular summer schedule and swim lessons begin.

The following info is available at

  • A downloadable copy of the Gath Pool schedule
