Richards Community Pool

The Richards Community Pool is open to members and Cape Elizabeth residents only.

We are using Sign-Up Genius to reserve time slots. See below for more information on Sign Up Genius.

Advanced reservations are required. We are unable to accommodate walk-ins. A reservation link is emailed to members and posted below for non-member residents. Each time slot can only be reserved for one person. If you are signing up multiple people, a separate time slot must be reserved. Using a unique email ensures each person can sign up for the number of slots allotted. The number of slots fluctuates as CDC requirements change and programs are reintroduced back into the schedule.

We continue to field complaints regarding “No Shows”. We understand, things come up however as a courtesy to all, please cancel your reservation in advance. It is very simple and signing up for a Sign-Up Genius account makes it even simpler. There is a link to a tutorial below.
If someone made a reservation on your behalf, you will need to ask them/us to change. If you cannot make it on the day of, please call the pool/fitness center at 799-3184 and let them know. DO not cancel a reservation after the fact as this impacts our contact tracing records.

Non-member residents are required to pay $5 per visit. You may pay the daily fee or secure a membership. New memberships may be purchased in person at either the Pool/Fitness Center or Community Services. FMI on Membership Rates
