The Crow Indoor Pool is an aquatic center operated by the Charlottesville Parks and Recreation Department that is co-located at Walker Upper Elementary School. The pool remains open in 2022 despite an earlier decision by Council in the late 2000's to close it.

The pool is named after Nan Crow, a director of the city recreation department. [citation needed]


Closure and reopening

The pool was closed in October 2010 when the new Smith Aquatic & Fitness Center opened. [1]

Despite being closed to the public, Crow was initially reopened to be be rented by groups at a rate of $16.50 per lane-hour. [2][dead link]

Crow's closure had been contingent on the eventual reopening of the Piedmont Family YMCA in McIntire Park. [1]
