Welcome to Ashby Recreation Association

Ashby Recreation Association is a member’s only pool that strives to be the friendliest summer recreation facility offering the most entertainment opportunities for families in Bridgewater and the surrounding community. We offer our members a summer of swimming, diving, relaxing or competing in a clean and safe environment. The 330,000 gallon family pool is 25 meters long with a water depth of 2’- 6’. 

The roped off diving area has a depth of 10’. The pool is equipped with an ADA lift and has a 25-meter lap lane. A separate children’s pool is available for children under 6 and has a maximum depth of 1’. 

On land, you can enjoy shuffleboard, corn hole, basketball, four square or grab some food from the concession stand. There is plenty of room to stretch out and read, soak up some rays, or enjoy time with friends. 

With activities such as early morning lap swims, raft nights, teen nights, movie nights, family fun nights, swim lessons, Anacondas swim team, and open swim periods, we offer something for everyone. 

The pool is located at 250 Anaconda Way just east of Oakdale Park in Bridgewater and is open Memorial Day to Labor Day.
