Highland Pool

An Albuquerque Favorite

Highland Pool is an indoor 25-meter by 25-yard swimming pool with a 3-meter and 1-meter diving board and an outdoor wading pool.

Children under 10 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

Children ages 8 and under must be supervised by an adult at all times while in the water. Therefore, they both need to be in the water.

Year-Round Enjoyment

Highland Pool is available to school students and athletes, as well as the public.

Solar Power
