Zero Entry Pool & Playground
The swimming pool at the Cedar Rapids Country Club is both an engineering marvel and a hub of summer family and social activity. Nestled into a bluff overlooking Indian Creek, it was Iowa’s first outdoor pool. Originally constructed in 1923 and rebuilt in 1993, it remains Iowa’s largest zero entry pool. The pool has a deep end equipped with two diving boards and lanes for lap swimming. The middle of the pool provides a large area for children and families to play games and swim. A zero-entry walk in shallow end with several fountains provides a wonderful and safe playground for young families. The gracious expanse of the pool is particularly welcome on hot summer days with kids splashing around and grandmothers swimming laps are all enjoying the sparkling temperature-controlled waters. The CRCC swim team uses the pool for their practices and meets. The life guards are available for private and group swim lessons for those wanting to improve their swimming ability.
Terraced decks with tables and umbrellas fill the hillside next to the pool for members who want to enjoy the shade of the large oaks surrounding the pool. The pool also has a large sun deck for those who like to enjoy the sun.
The Cabana serves up hot and cold sandwiches, salads, snacks and ice cream. The full bar offers a variety of beverages, cocktails and frozen drinks. The Cabana also houses the boys and girls locker rooms and restrooms. Steps up from the Cabana are a basketball court, playground equipment, and the CRCC Kids’ Camp pavilion.
