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.
The opening date for the 2019 pool season will be May 18, 2019. If we get enough volunteers to get the pool ready in time, we may open a week earlier.
Membership fees for 2019 are:
