Pool Facilities

The Alpena County Plaza Pool

Facilities

The Plaza Pool is devoted to aquatics, featuring an indoor pool that offers a variety of activities for all ages!

Our Water

Think all pool water is alike? When you experience the Plaza Pool’s water, you’ll realize it’s not. We pride ourselves on having the cleanest, purest, most sparklingly–clear water you can find. Our highly–advanced water treatment system continuously eliminates the chlorine byproducts which (in other pools) can cause eye, skin, and respiratory irritation. The result is water that’s incredibly pure and has very little chlorine odor or taste!

Lap Pool

This 25-yard pool has six lanes of crystal-clear water. The depth ranges from 3 feet to 10 feet. The pool’s 84-degree water is perfect for a large variety of activities. The rectangular pool offers six 25–yard lanes, and this pool also has a wide “ramp” area which provides a walking entrance into the pool. The pool is available for fitness, hydrotherapy and recreational use.

Party Area

Our spacious and comfortable party area provides plenty of options for birthday parties and other events. You can’t beat the Plaza Pool for your child’s birthday whether the temperature outside is sweltering or bitter cold, our water is always a welcome oasis. Our party area is available during our open swimming times. Reservations are required.
