Miller Park Pool

Phone: (434) 455-5880

Miller Park Pool keeps the city cool in the summer with some wet and wild fun for everyone every day! Located in mid-town, the Olympic size pool also offers a children’s pool area, a twisting water slide, high dive, and a kiddie area with mushroom waterfall.  An ADA accessible hydraulic lift chair allows those with special needs to enjoy the complex. And don’t forget the concessions stand for drinks and snacks–it operates during regular pool hours and closes approximately 30 minutes before the pool.

The pool also hosts CPR/First Aid/AED Certification courses, lifeguard training and certification, water safety instructor course and the American Red Cross Learn-to-Swim Program. You can find out more about our aquatics programs by clicking here.

Riverfront Park is located near the river in downtown Lynchburg, and connects to the Riverwalk trail along its northern edge. Our Riverfront Park Fountains offers a splash of fun and a great way to cool down in the summer. Visit the Riverfront Park Fountains at 1100 Jefferson Street Lynchburg, VA 24504.
