The Granbury Community Pool is Open for Summer 2023
Lake Granbury is the most popular hot spot for outdoor summer fun in Granbury Texas. The lake of course is free to access at all of the public parks around the lake. The most popular is at City Park right in the middle of downtown Granbury. But if you just moved here or are considering a move it is good to know that Granbury has a community pool also open for swimming fun during the summer. It offers extra opportunities to get in the water on hot summer days and gives a smaller atmosphere making it easier to meet up with friends or maybe even meet other Granbury residents.
About the Granbury Community Pool
The community pool in Granbury Texas is officially named the Dana Vollmer Municipal Swim Center but is often referred to as the community pool. It is a facility of the public parks department and home to a 4280 ft.² pool that holds 196,000 gallons of water with depth variations from 4 feet to 12 feet. There are 675-foot swimming lanes, a waterslide, and a shaded splash area for smaller children.
About Dana Vollmer
Dana Vollmer is a Granbury native, although not born in Granbury she moved to the area with her parents at a very young age and got her swimming start in the area on the Fort Worth competitive swimming team known as FAST. As Balmer grew up she went on to the University of Florida to continue her competitive swimming career and then onto the Olympics. She competed in several Summer Olympic swimming competitions and has won many medals including Olympic gold and has also broken world records. Possibly one of the most impressive being the first Olympic woman swimmer to win a medal as a mom.
It is sad that Dana's parents still live in the Granbury area and Granbury is very proud to have been Dana's hometown in her younger years. The pool was named after Dana to show their pride and her accomplishments and support as well as to continue to inspire young swimmers in Granbury that look up to this Granbury hometown girl.
