Municipal Swimming Pool

Families and folks of all ages from Stratford and surrounding communities enjoy the Stratford Pool.  The pool is typically open from 1:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. (weather pending).  The pool features a zero-depth entry; a deep end area that offers a diving board; concessions stand and a shaded area for you to enjoy that snack; plus chaise lounges for patrons to use for relaxing on the sun deck.  A separate wading pool intended for babies and toddlers is available at no charge; however adult supervision is required as there is no lifeguard on duty in this area.

Due to lifeguard shortage, the pool will be operating on a limited schedule this summer. We will do our best to post the schedule of when the pool will be open a month at a time. Please understand that there may be some changes as we do our best to accommodate the community as well as our staff that we do have. Please check back for updates. 

If you have any suggestions for activities that you would like to see happen, post a note on City of Stratford Facebook page, email us at cityofstratford2@globalccs,net or call 515-838-2311.

The City of Stratford is still accepting applications for lifeguards for the 2022 Pool Season! We are now offering $10/hour plus a $0.50/hour stipened at the end of the season if all scheduled hours are worked. Contact City Hall at 515-838-2311 or with any questions.
