GARA = The Green Acres Pool
Comments heard at GARA in 2012
"Peaceful and private."
"Perfect amount of tree shade and sun."
"Having two full sized pools is really great! Everyone has plenty of room."
"Left for a while but came back because the people here are so friendly. We missed it."
"People who want their kids with the best coach need to find out about Green Acres!"
We had a great 2012 season - winning swim team, fun times playing and splashing at the pool.
Welcome to our new Board of Directors! We have spent the winter thinking up ways to serve you better.
A GARA Production - "Spring Fever"

What is it about your old pool that really puts a twist in your Speedo?
burn you up
about your old pool
What's cool about
- Too rambunctious - always waiting for adult swim for a little peace and quiet
- Choose a chaise at our full sized LOWER 25m POOL. When the team is not practicing, it is reserved for adults and lap swimmers. Read a book, socialize with other adults, hear the birds chirp!
- Swim team practice and CAMP makes a crowd and limits open swim time
- UPPER 25m POOL is for open swim and families almost all the time, where fun but safe rules the day. Our team has its own separate pool!
- Don't get a lot of use out of the pool because of my work hours
- How about a fresh air workout before work with our Early Morning Swim times from 5:30am-8am? Now that's value added!
- Don't want to buy a bond!
- Bond purchase is optional. Try us this summer. If you love GA, it pays to buy a bond and keep coming back.

Two Full Sized 25 Meter Pools and a Baby Pool
There is no other club like us in N. Wilmington!
Having two big pools gives us plenty of room for all our activities.
This pool is for families, free swim, and fun events.
This pool is for swim team practice within limited hours.
It is primarily for lap swimmers, lessons, and adults who prefer a quieter poolside atmosphere.
The lower pool is assumed to be unguarded and "swim at your own risk". No one may swim alone without an attentive partner age 18 or older.
Green Acres also has an active Social Calendar for all ages.
Of course, our social events will continue to expand throughout the swim season.
Continue to check our Event Calendar for more information on upcoming activities.
Come play: Basketball, Volleyball, Tether-ball, Horseshoes, Ping Pong, BBQs and more
