New Community Pool Makes A Big Splash In Southampton Town

NEW COMMUNITY POOL 1x1

After years of planning, a competitive sized pool is now open at the Suffolk County Community College eastern campus on Speonk-Riverhead Road following a ribbon cutting ceremony. Southampton Town Supervisor Jay Schneiderman was among the invited speakers.  Mr. Schneiderman had fought passionately for the pool when he was a Suffolk County Legislator for 12 years.  “This is truly a dream come true, said Schneiderman. “It took many years of hard work to get the funding for the Health and Wellness Center but this is something the whole community can now enjoy.”   

The nearly $22 million, 40,000 square foot building features the 8 lane pool designed for competitive swimming.  It will also be open to the public for either a daily fee or a yearly membership.

“Our Parks and Recreation Department plans to use the pool for lifeguard training and our Police Department plans to use it for dive training,” said Schneiderman.  

The Suffolk Community College pool is the first competitive sized pool to open on the east end of Long Island in many years.  The “Y” in East Hampton has a pool but many schools and community groups have long advocated for a large pool on the East End for swimming competitions and to help children learn how to swim.  

The new facility is equipped with bleachers, a sound system, an interactive scoreboard, LED Lighting and is ADA accessible.  

The facility also features an 11,500 square foot gymnasium with 8 courts for basketball, volleyball and badminton.  It also holds an indoor track.  The weight and fitness area features a rock-climbing wall.
