About WCP

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.
