The Loyalsock Community Pool has been a favorite recreational past time for residents since it was first built in 1966. Updates to the pool deck, gutter system, piping, installation of handicapped accessible ramp, and installation of a new pool liner were done in the early 2000’s. The double pool slide was installed in 201, a new pool liner was installed in 2018, and a new splash pool was installed and opened to the public in 2019.
