It's the Place to Be...
Green Acres is unique in North Wilmington with three pools. The full-sized Upper Pool is all about family fun. The full-sized Lower Pool is dedicated to fitness lanes, lessons, and swim team practice. We also have a pretty, partly shaded splash pool and playground for the youngest fishies. Browse our site for news of all our extra facilities and loaded event calendar!
Plus, if you live in Green Acres, Carrcroft or Northwood, the pool is truly in your backyard. Carrcroft and Northwood residents can walk or bike to the pool from Lakewood Drive directly to the gate on a brand new paved path and bridge. No more wet minivan seats, and your kids can bike to swim practice with a buddy!
Pool Shopping? The Green Acres Advantage!
Here are a few key things that will keep you coming back. You won't find all this anywhere else in North Wilmington!
Recreational Swimmers & Families
You won't have to wade through a hundred campers. The Upper Pool is for your enjoyment! Safety and fun rule the day at the Upper Pool. It's where you and your children will make life-long friends.
There are lanes reserved for you at the Lower Pool almost all the time. This pool is shared with Swim Team which practices mostly in the evenings. Plus - our exclusive Sunrise Swim!
Socializers and Book Lovers
Some people like to choose a chaise by the quieter Lower Pool and chat or read a book with fewer children around.
Some like it hot, but it's so nice to cool down once you've had enough. Our grounds are encircled by beautiful shade trees. We're not called "Green Acres" for nothing.
Subject to lifeguard availability, we offer an early morning swim Monday through Saturday. Free to members, reasonable fee for non-members. Click here for program details.
Do we require a Bond?
We offer a limited number of non-bondholder memberships. You will see that buying a bond pays for itself QUICKLY, plus you'll get to help run the pool if you wish! See our New Bondholder Special. It's worth it, because we know you'll want to come back year after year (after year.)
