Main Outdoor Pool
The main outdoor pool, open from Memorial Day to Labor Day, is 50 meters long by 10 lanes wide, with a separate shallow end. Originally constructed in 1930, the pool now has a movable fiberglass and steel bulkhead across six lanes which creates a 6-lane 25 meter course, a 5-lane 25 yard course, and allows five 50 meter lanes available for training, and/or recreation. Most summer days, six 25 meter, two 25 yard, and two 50 meter lanes are available for lap swimming/training. The pool has a ramp in the shallow end to allow for assisted entry. A one meter diving board is in the deep end.
Outdoor Tennis Courts
Meadowbrook has two Har-Tru courts which are resurfaced each spring and maintained daily at optimum playing conditions. Har-Tru courts are a clay type surface which allows for less stress on knee, ankle and hip joints when playing. Courts are available for members and their guests’ use from May until October. Maintenance (rolling and sweeping) of courts may be scheduled during non-busy times.
Children’s Outdoor Pool
The outdoor children’s recreational pool was constructed in 1997. It measures 2,400 square feet (about 70x35 feet) and has a maximum depth of 2-1/2 feet. Located on the north lawn, this pool has a number of features which make it a popular choice for children and parents.
Separated from the main pool by a fence and having a fully shaded lawn and new pavilion offering shade and privacy, the pool is almost a club within a club. Elegant and beautiful landscaping surrounds this pool with terra cotta edging. The pavilion, reconstructed with pressure treated lumber and dark green metal roof offers a great view of the pool and a popular place to eat and have a party. Children love the zero depth walk-in at the base of the shallow end complete with gentle water jets. A raindrop fountain and shallow water jets add excitement for kids of all ages. Deeper into this pool are benches along the western edge of the shallow end, an island with a whale and then the “deep end” 30 inches in depth with four air bubblers for kids’ enjoyment. Benches continue around the perimeter of this end of the pool with stairs leading up and out the entire western edge of the pool.

The Main Outdoor Pool (10 lane 50 meters with separate shallow end) was constructed of poured concrete in 1930. Its original filtration system consisted of four sand and gravel tanks pumped from a gravity-fed surge pit inside the pump house at the south end of the pool. This filter was replaced in 1988 by two high-rate sand filters contained within the pump house. The gravity fed filtration pit remains the same with some modifications. The filtration rate of 2000 gallons per minute exceeds the old filters 1600 GPM. The stainless steel gutter system added to the top of the pool assists in better filtration because it more filters surface water than the previous systems as well as allowing for filtered water returns around the circumference of the pool every eighteen inches. The pool is chlorinated using sodium hypochlorite (liquid chlorine) and gas chlorine. The pool, due to excessive loss from evaporation and splashing, is not stabilized. PH is regulated by adding soda ash. The pool has a movable fiberglass and steel bulkhead across six lanes which creates a six lane 25 meter course, a five lane 25 yard course, and allows five 50 meter lanes available for training, and / or recreation. Most summer days, six 25 meter, two 25 yard, and two 50 meter lanes are available for lap swimming / training. The pool has a ramp in the shallow end to allow for disabled entry. A one meter diving board is in the deep end. This pool measures 92 feet x 195 feet and has an average depth of 7 feet. Total gallons = 815,850. With a flow rate of 2000 gallons per minute, this pool turns over every 6.8 hours.
