Nestled in Lions Park along Davis Avenue is the community based Lincoln Pool. It is a great hangout spot for families with children of all ages. Families, kids, and teens will have fun playing through the spouting and spraying on-deck water toys, jumping off the diving board or diving into the deep end. A separate 1 to 1.5 foot deep kids’ pool is the perfect place for toddlers to enjoy the hot summer days.

*Protocols and guidelines are subject to change
The pool house offers a secured item check in where we will gladly hold all of your valuable items while you enjoy the water and sun. We also offer changing areas, showers, and restrooms.
Participants swimming in the deep end or going off the diving board are required to take a swimming test. This test is required each visit and must be administered by a Lifeguard.
Learn-to-Swim Classes Lincoln
American Red Cross Learn-to-Swim Classes are available at Lincoln Pool in the morning and in the afternoon. Sessions run Monday through Thursday for two weeks. Classes are 30 minutes in length. For more information regarding available classes contact the Program Desk inside the Nampa Recreation Center at 208-468-5858 or register online here.
Swimsuits are required for swimming at Lincoln Pool. Street clothes, undergarments, sweats, etc. are not permitted in the pools.
Children wearing diapers are welcome in the pool as long as they are wearing swim diapers or snug fitting rubber pants over the diapers and underneath their bathing suits.
Lincoln Pool only allows coast guard approved flotation, such as life jackets, to be worn in the pools. Coast guard approved flotation is designed to ensure that a child’s head will be maintained above the water. Examples of non-coast guard approved flotation are water wings, inflatable rings, and suits with built in flotation. Noodles are allowed in the pool as long as the child stays where they can touch and are using the equipment appropriately.
Uncontrollable weather or other conditions may result in our outdoor pools opening late or closing early. The pool manager will make a decision on closing if the following occur:
- The number of swimmers in the water is less than 10 for at least an hour (low attendance is more likely on unseasonably cool days.)
- There is mechanical failure or pool chemicals are unbalanced.
- There is a strong steady rain for over 30 minutes.
- There is a threat of violent weather or lightening (if lightening occurs for more than 30 minutes, pool will close for the session).
