J. Robert Crowley Swimming Pool

The J. Robert Crowley Swimming Pool at Coolidge Park
began its eleventh season in 2007. The pool is free to all, and includes a large swimming area, a wading area with a raindrop and tumble buckets for the children, and a fully renovated bathhouse. Swimming lessons are available. Call 978-345-9572 for info. Construction of the swimming pool was made possible by a grant from the Executive Office of Environmental Affairs, Division of Conservation Services, and by the City of Fitchburg's Community Development Block Grant Program.

Life guards are always on duty when the pool is open. Call the Fitchburg Parks and Recreation Department at 978-345-9572 with any questions

Parkhill Splash Park

In July of 2001, the renovations to Fitchburg's Parkhill Park were completed. The park received new playground equipment, drainage improvements to the baseball field and to the brook, and a new water spray park, featured in these photos.
Construction began in 1999 with funding provided by the Community Development Block Grant Program and the Massachusetts Executive Office of Environmental Affairs, but the construction of the park was plagued with delays caused by a bankruptcy, oil contamination, and lightning strikes.
Those problems have now all been overcome, and the park is open to the public during the summer months. The splash park is open every day from 11-6. The balance of the park, including the Ryan Joubert Memorial Skatepark, is open from dawn to dusk
