Municipal Swimming Pool

The Stratford pool is tentatively opening on June 3, 2023 for the season! 

Families and folks of all ages from Stratford and surrounding communities enjoy the Stratford Pool.  The pool is typically open from 1:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. (weather and attendance pending).  The pool features a zero-depth entry; a deep end area that offers a diving board; concessions stand and a shaded area for you to enjoy that snack; plus chaise lounges for patrons to use for relaxing on the sun deck.  A separate wading pool intended for babies and toddlers is available at no charge; however adult supervision is required as there is no lifeguard on duty in this area.

Group swimming lessons will be held the week of June 19-23, 2023 with classes from 12:00-12:45 pm. Class sizes are limited to the first 7 children in each age group and will be based on a first paid, first served basis. If classes become filled quickly, we will consider adding a session from 11:00-11:45 am. Lesssons are $25.00 per child or $20.00 per child for patrons with a Stratford family or single pool pass. Children must be at least 4 years old to participate. You can find the registration form below. Private and buddy lessons will also be available this year - contact City Hall for more information.
