About the HHRC Pools

The HHRC primary pool is 25 meters long and eight lanes wide.  It also includes a roped learning area for young swimmers and a diving area with two springboards, including one of the only high diving boards in Chapel Hill. In addition, HHRC has a gated zero-entry baby pool area that includes a shelter and picnic tables.  The baby pool is ideal for toddlers because of it's beach like walk-in entry and two splash fountains.
