Norwood Heights Pool

December 26, 2022

The old neighborhood pool is loved by many. Although it may be a little rough around the edges, it manages to stay open year after year. It’s important to note that November is not the best time to visit a public outdoor pool, as the water temperature is likely to be much colder than the air temperature. In fact, it can be quite dangerous to swim in water that is cold enough to cause hypothermia or shock.

The members-only pool at the neighborhood pool is not usually very crowded, but there are private parties held there on Sundays from 6-9pm. One UTK student who was searching for an outdoor pool to swim in had a negative experience when calling to inquire about the availability of the pool. The person they spoke to was reportedly rude and told them that the only place they would be able to swim at that time of year was in Florida, where the weather was much warmer.


Love the old neighborhood pool! It’s a little rough around the edges, but it squeaks by year after year. There is no public (unheated) outdoor pool that is going to be open in November. Just because the air temp is 80 on one day does not mean that the water temp is even remotely close to that. Despite the economics of keeping a pool open through the winter while almost nobody is paying to swim, its also a considerable liability to have people swimming in water cold enough to induce shock or hypothermia. Looks like ya’ll need a few more years of Uni lol.

I am a UTK student who was looking for any local outdoor pool that was open. I tried calling and the lady was extremely rude and said that the only place I was going to be able to swim this time of year is in Florida when it was 80 degrees and sunny out the whole day. I wasn’t trying to be rude but my friend and I were just looking for an outdoor pool and she had a MAJOR attitude
