Become a Pool Member

Annual membership to the Highlands Natural Pool is highly recommended and open to all, regardless of where you live!

Benefits of Pool Membership


Members can visit the pool as often as they like during regular hours

Join members-only swim hour 11am-12pm each day.

Use our members-only reserved parking area

Members can bring up to 5 guests per visit and pay just $10 each

A picnic grove table and grill can be reserved in advance at no charge

The Pool is run by volunteers and we are sustained financially by our paid Memberships and donations. Non-members visiting for the day provide some additional income to help us meet our expenses, but we are committed to strengthening the sense of community that the Pool has historically been known for - something that is especially needed in these trying times.
