Pool opens May 20, 2023!
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, new lounge chairs, and umbrellas. A life ring, metal signs, and hand rail were also purchased. The City of Knoxville health inspection scores were all 100 last year.
Membership fees for 2023 are:
- $285 for Timbercrest families
- $325 for non-resident families
- $155 for Timbercrest singles and grandparents

A family is defined as one or two adults and their dependents who are under the age of 19 or are full time students (with valid ID).

Adults over the age of 25 living in the same household will be an additional $100.00 each.
Guests fees are $5.00 per day per person per day with no fee for out of town guests. Guests are restricted to 5 visits per season. The number of guests per day are limited to 4 per membership. Fees or guest passes must be turned in on the day of visit. Pool members can earn free guest passes by volunteer work. Volunteer opportunities are available year round.

Members can hold parties at the Timbercrest pool. Large parties for ten or more swimmers are $50.00 for a usage fee and $5.00 per swimmer or small parties of five to nine (5-9) guests for a $20 usage fee plus $5 per swimmer. Party usage fees are due at the time of party reservation. This fee is refundable in the case of party cancellation. Swimmer fees can be paid at the time of the party. Please note, parties are not private. Other pool members will be allowed access to the pool/amenities during scheduled party hours.
