The pool at Soldier's and Sailor's 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.
