The City of Jennings War Memorial Pool opened in 1949 and has served as a great place of enjoyment to the citizens of Jennings over its many years of existence. Learning to swim is a valuable life skill, and one that is taught at the pool every summer. Youth swimming lessons are offered every June and they introduce the youth of Jennings to the importance of water safety, as well as the great health benefits of learning how to swim. Lifeguard training is also offered at the pool for those interested in working at the pool during the swimming season. The Jennings Aqua Dog swim team has used the pool as its home for many years to train competitive youth swimmers for competition. The pool is also available to book for parties during the summer months, and parties at the pool have long been a popular way to spend a summer evening. Whether you are interested in learning how to swim, becoming a competitive swimmer, lifeguarding, or just looking for a place to gather with friends and family, there are many ways to enjoy the Jennings War Memorial Pool.
