Greenwood Memorial Pool & Spray Park

"Where learning is fun and building confidence is #1." 

Greenwood Memorial Outdoor Pool will remain open until Saturday, Sept. 2nd. 


Public Announcement

Greenwood Pool Splash Park

The splash park will not be in operation this season as a result of the short staffing resources of the Greenwood Pool.  

For the safety of the children, due to the location of the splash park (near the 13-foot-deep end of the pool), a lifeguard must be assigned to oversee the use of the splash pad.   To assign a lifeguard to the splash park will require the removal of a lifeguard from the pool area resulting in a decrease in the number of people who can use the pool.  As the pool garners the most use, the best and most beneficial use of the Greenwood Pool lifeguards is the actual pool assignment. 

The staff shortage is a result of the limited number of trained and certified lifeguards available for hire.  This shortage has not only impacted the Greenwood Pool, but also several surrounding pools/swim areas both private and public. 

Thank you for understanding.   

The safety of our community members who visit the Greenwood Pool is our primary goal. 

Hours of Operation:  12:00 noon to 5:00 pm

In the event of inclement weather, please call (978) 632-0678 or visit the City website ( to confirm whether or not the pool is open.
