Additionally, the pool is used for Red Cross learn to swim programs, our own recreational swim team, community lifeguard training courses, water exercise classes,  and members of the community for daily swimming.

The city of Bristol operates two public municipal pools in both Page Park and Rockwell Park. The pools are open seasonally for an 8-week period, daily from 1pm-7pm.  Page pool features a large swimming area for families. Rockwell offers a smaller, shallow-water swimming experience.
