About the Club

Secluded in a leafy hollow at the end of Pool Lane, Rose Valley Swimming Pool is justly called the coolest spot in Delaware County. It’s a beautiful place to spend some of the best times of your summer.

Built on the site of community swimming hole Lotus Pond (c. 1840) – a mill pond which supplied power to Hutton’s Mill (now Hedgerow Theatre) – Rose Valley Swimming Pool was established in 1925. One of the oldest clubs in Delaware County, the Pool is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Rose Valley has three pools to accommodate swimmers of all ages. The one-foot deep baby pool is surrounded by benches and adjoins a grassy lawn with a play gym. The middle pool is two feet deep with shallow steps at one end and a depth of 4.5 feet at the far end, which is just a few steps from the main lifeguard stand. Our big pool is 30 yards long, with a dedicated lap lane and a competition-grade diving board.

Surrounding the pool is a concrete deck with chaises lounges and chairs. Beyond the deck, our lawn is a cool and welcoming carpet, furnished with picnic tables and gas grills and bisected by Vernon Run and its population of minnows, tadpoles and frogs. A sun deck above the stream is a popular site for basking after a swim, playing cards, sharing snacks and secrets. Up a few steps on a path from the sun deck and the pool entrance, men’s and women’s bathhouses offer showers, changing rooms and toilets.

Rose Valley members enjoy use of four tennis courts – two hard courts and two Har-Tru. A backboard adjoins the hard courts, and a shady pavilion provides a place to rest, chat and watch matches. Our tennis pro offers lessons and clinics, racquet stringing and equipment advice.

The Club welcomes new members, both residents and non-residents of Rose Valley Borough.
