Restrictions and Changes for 2021

The Frog Pond is operating at limited capacity due to staffing. Admission to the pool is on a first come, first serve basis. We are not taking reservations during regular business hours.

We are not accommodating daycares, camps, field trips, organized groups, or parties during regular business hours.

We are not allowing re-entry due to limited allowed capacity in the Frog Pond.

We will continue to follow guidelines from the Centers of Disease Control and Virginia Department of Health for the operation of outdoor swimming pools.

Please note that our ability to continue offering these public services are subject to change as the CDC and VDH revise their guidelines, recommendations, and requirements.

General Information

The Frog Pond is a great place to hang out and relax during the summer. The pool has a zero-depth entry for those wanting to take their time and ease into the water. It also has a maximum depth of eight feet for those who want to make a splash and jump right in!

The Frog Pond has a children's pool equipped with a water-spouting whale and a bubbler. There are four slides in the big pool - three tube slides and a frog slide.

There is also plenty of room to sit back and enjoy the sunshine poolside. Coolers, food, and non-alcoholic drinks are allowed.

Concessions are offered through the Lilly Pad Café, which is operated by Hethwood Market in Blacksburg. For more information, contact them at (540) 951-0990 or visit the Hethwood Market Facebook page.

Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an individual age 16 or older.

Refund Policy

Upon entrance to the Frog Pond, a sales receipt is given. The time of payment is printed at the bottom of the receipt. This will allow staff to see what time patrons entered the pool.

If the pool closes for any reason within exactly two hours or less of your arrival, we issue a pool pass for future use during the season. No refunds are given for any reason.

If you no longer have possession of the receipt, we cannot verify what time you entered the facility and no pass will be given. Please keep your receipt.

Re-entry to the Frog Pond is not allowed for the 2021 season.

 

Inclement Weather Policy

In the event that lighting is seen or thunder is heard, all guests must exit the pool for 30 minutes. Additional instances of lightning and thunder will result in a restart of the 30 minute timer. 

Closing and Information Line

The Frog Pond Closing and Information Line is (540) 382-6975, Option 2. Please note that this line is a recording. If the recording states the Frog Pond is closed on previous date, we are open on the current day unless the recording changes.
