We are a community pool, and we welcome individuals and families from surrounding communities throughout greater Williamsburg, from the college community to Green Springs, Saint George’s Hundred to Toano. WCP is a non-profit, membership-only swim club open to the general public.
WCP is home to the Manta Rays Swim Team.
We will open on June 11, 2020 as allowed by Virginia Governor Northam’s Phase 2 Guidelines. During Phase 2, we will be open daily through Labor Day, or until further notice.
Phase 2: Sunday – Saturday, 11 a.m. – 7 p.m.
* Pool will be closed for the swim team events, if applicable.
The Williamsburg Community Pool (WCP) opened for business in August of 1955 following a community fund-raising effort. The Virginia Gazette documented its first days.
Officially we are known as the Williamsburg Area Memorial Community Center, Inc. We operate the pool and lease the community center building to the Virginia Regional Ballet.
