It’s Pool Season: Memberships Available for the Community

Swimmers enjoy the outdoor pool at the Kennett Area YMCA.

YMCA of Greater Brandywine opens Kennett Pool to the Community this Summer

(Kennett Square, PA) – Memorial Day weekend is just around the corner, and so is summer fun. Residents of Kennett borough or Kennett township who want to use the Kennett borough pool can do so by purchasing a community pool membership through the Kennett Area YMCA, a branch of the YMCA of Greater Brandywine (YGBW).

The Kennett borough leases the outdoor pool to the Kennett Area YMCA. In the summer of 2023, pool use was reserved for attendees of YMCA summer camp and members of the YMCA’s swim team, with a limited number of community swim nights on weekends. This summer, YGBW is pleased to announce the availability of community pool memberships.

“We’re looking forward to welcoming the community to the outdoor pool this season,” says Nic Legere, District Executive Director. “I’ve had the opportunity to work with local elected officials and members of the community to hear feedback. Our leadership team at YGBW has partnered with our staff team at the Kennett Area YMCA to come up with an outdoor pool membership option to meet the needs of many in our community. I hope you’ll join us this summer at the pool.”
