Bisbee City Pool

The Bisbee Municipal Swimming Pool is a long-standing feature of Bisbee recreation. The City of Bisbee was awarded a grant for $47,000 from Arizona State Parks in 1967 to build the pool for the youth of Bisbee. Total project cost was $95,000 and was completed in 1969. It included a large pool with a diving board, a baby pool, and a building for changing rooms. Since then, a Ramada with picnic tables was added, the original diving board was removed, and the changing rooms have been restructured. Major repairs have been made to bring the pool into compliance with the ADA. A large donation was made in Fiscal Year 2017 to repair the baby pool, improvements were made to the grounds, and new furniture was purchased for around the pool. In FY22 the pool deck was repaired with the assistance of the ARPA grant. The pool typically opens Memorial Day weekend and closes when school resumes; however, with the help of donations and warm weather conditions the pool season may be extended. The Pool is budgeted for ten part-time seasonal lifeguard positions.
