First Colony Pool

The First Colony pool is a 25 meter, competition-sized pool, with a shallow area, lap lane, diving well with two low diving boards, and a separate baby pool. Several canopies provide shaded areas to go along with the plentiful area for sunning. We have a beautiful brand new pool house with a snack bar, rest rooms, and changing room. 

General Information


The pool is located within the Greater First Colony park near the playground and the clubhouse at 125 Pasbehegh Drive, Williamsburg VA 23185.
