This summer, the pools will be open on May 27-29th, June 3rd-4th, June 10th-August 27th, and September 2nd-4th. Dates and times are subject to change based on the Talbot County Public Schools (TCPS) calendar, pool events, and weather conditions.

General pool admission is $5 (cash or check). Summer pool passes are available for individuals, seniors, and families starting at $65. Membership forms can be found online on the Talbot Parks website, and should be returned and paid for at the Talbot Community at 10028 Ocean Gtwy, Easton, MD 21601.

Children, ages 18 months through 18 years, and adults can register for free swim lessons at either pool through the support of SOS Sink or Swim, a non-profit organization out of the Chesapeake Maritime Museum. The organization has provided more than 6,500 free, learn-to-swim sessions since 2014, and has graciously continued support for the 2023 pool season.

The Bay Hundred Community Pool also offers Lap Swim time on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and Water Aerobics on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Times vary.

Citizens may also reserve pools for private parties at either location. Reservations can be made for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday for either 6-8 p.m. for $250, or 6-9 p.m. for $350. Lifeguards and pool staff are provided. Pavilion rentals are also available, visit or call to reserve.
