Directions to the Park:
The Millheim Pool at the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Park is located just off Park Road in Millheim, PA. From the intersection of routes 45 and 445 (aka North Street) in downtown Millheim, head west on route 45 until you cross the bridge. Park Road is the first left after the bridge. Follow Park Road until you see the park entrance on your left.
The pool at Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Park in Millheim, PA, more commonly known as the Millheim Pool, was built by volunteers in 1970 to provide the families of Penns Valley a safe place to go for summer recreation. The five-acre park is owned by the Millheim Lions Club and maintained by the volunteer Penns Valley Park and Recreation Association, Inc.
The park contains the public pool as well as 4 large pavilions available for rental, playground equipment, a basketball court, horseshoe pits and a regulation sand volleyball court in a beautiful setting along Elk Creek. The pool has a six-lane, 25 yard pool with an attached diving well, bath-houses with showers, and concessions.
The pool is also the home of the Penns Valley Penguins Swim Team and the location for many summer programs, including swimming lessons, water aerobics, wrestling camp, sand volleyball, scuba, and the (newly renamed) Penns Valley Sprint Triathlon.

We appreciate your patience (especially considering how hot it has been this weekend!). Volunteers spent weeks patching, cleaning, and painting the pool between the rain and cold weather. The Millheim Fire Company then pumped it full in a matter of hours. They have always been an amazing community asset to Millheim and the pool especially. After having that done in a timely manner, the process of adding chemicals and clearing up the pool began. The obstacles that came with that were things we couldn't anticipate. Product shortages coupled with lengthy "fast-shipping" has us a week past Memorial Day and still not open to the public.
We will keep you in the loop via email (members) and FB. Please share the latest with friends who want to come down. Let them know we will see them as soon as possible. Our guard staff has been hired, trained, and ready to work.
