Fairfax Pool information

Fairfax Pool is a 600,000 gallon aquatic facility with a leisure pool, 50 yard competition area, diving well, three-story waterslide, kids play feature and a bathhouse. Fairfax Pool is open from late May through August and attracts nearly 70,000 visitors each summer who enjoy various aquatic activities. The pool has constant activity daily from 6:00am until 8:00pm. Fairfax also hosts the annual YMCA swim meet in late June which attracts thousands of fans and swimmers.

Fairfax Pool is a municipally run aquatic facility and as such, a major goal of the Eau Claire City Council is to make sure Fairfax Pool remains affordable to all Eau Claire residents.  In an effort to allow all citizens of Eau Claire to have a safe place to swim, we offer a scholarship program for low-income families to obtain a season pass for 25% of the regular fee.  In order to best serve our community, funds need to be raised so all families who apply can receive a scholarship pass for the summer. And you can help!
