Timbercrest Pool

The pool is open.

Help us have a safe and fun summer by following the posted Knox County Health Department guidelines: 

  • Practice Social Distancing - Stay 6 feet away from others who are not part of your household whenever possible even in the water.
  • Wear cloth face coverings - Wear a mask if you prefer. Do not wear masks while in the water.
  • Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer regularly - Soap is available in the restrooms. Bring hand sanitizer.
  • Clean frequently-touched surfaces - Volunteer for nightly sanitization of bathrooms and furniture following CDC recommendations.
  • Stay home when sick - Don’t come to the pool if you or a family member is feeling ill.

Here are some other considerations for the pool:

  • The max number of people for a gathering is 50. No parties during Phase 2. Consider going to the pool at off peak times to spread the crowd out.
  • Enjoy the water. The CDC says COVID-19 does not live in pool water itself.
  • Show courtesy to others.

Volunteer for the last few tasks this weekend or jobs throughout the season. More people means less work!

The Timbercrest Recreation Club pool board has been recognized with a Community Commitment certificate for following the Knox County/City of Knoxville Phased Reopening Plan. Read more: https://covid.knoxcountytn.gov

Since the Timbercrest pool was built in the late 1960s, it has been enjoyed by many generations of Timbercrest residents. It usually opens in May and closes in September – depending on the weather. It features a large, newly rebuilt kiddie pool as well as many tables with umbrellas and chairs. There is a volleyball net, grill, and fire pit. The pool has lap lanes, large steps (with a handrail), and a basketball net. The facilities include restrooms, a large shelter for shade, and an ample parking lot.

The pool is maintained by the Timbercrest Recreation Club, Inc. Maintenance, painting, cleaning, and more is done by neighborhood volunteers. In prior years, we rebuilt and re-tiled the kiddie pool, painted the pool, installed a new pump, dug ditches, and put in a grate to correct drainage. We added a concrete table, six new lounge chairs, and seven umbrellas. A life ring, metal signs, and hand rail were also purchased. The City of Knoxville health inspection scores range from 96 to 100.
