Ives Pool

Ives Pool is located within Ives Park on City- owned land at 7400 Willow Street.

It includes two pools: A six lane pool that measures 16 yards by 25 yards and a smaller pool that measures 16 yards by 14 yards. Ives Pool is used by both the Analy High School and El Molino High School swim teams and home to a wide variety of programs, serving a large number of users. Ives Pool is the only public pool in Sonoma County that is successfully operated by a non- profit organization. While substantially maintained by the pool non-profit organization, the City provides maintenance support for Ives Pool.

As an intensely utilized public pool facility, Ives Pool has substantial ongoing maintenance and capital improvement needs. Desired improvements include: expansion of the locker rooms; development of a family locker room/ bathroom; renovation of the picnic/ grounds area, possibly with water play fixtures. Fees, community and City support have enabled Ives Pool to continue its operations, but needs continue, and are significant.
