Our 2018 Pool Season is Pending
at the moment.
As many of you know we had to have our building removed and we were happy to work with our local fire department to enable them with training by burning it down.
Please follow the facebook page GCRD Pool House tear down and rebuild to keep updated.

The goal of this group is to keep people informed about the process of tearing down and rebuilding the pool house (office and locker rooms) at the GCRD pool in the city park. It will also act as a space to solicit help with fundraising activities where appropriate. In mid January as we were looking to do some light renovations, we discovered extensive water damage behind the frp boards. The walls were just plywood and frp cannot be sealed so water had been getting into the plywood for decades. Through investigation we found out that the building was a total loss including the foundation. We hope to be open as much as possible this summer, but will know more as we move forward.
Since the page was started we have learned we need to remove the deck to access all the plumbing to the pools for replacement and put in a new sewer/drain line.


Nestled in the small community of Emmett, the GCRD Pool (also known as the Emmett Pool) provides aquatic recreation, water safety instruction, and fitness classes to residents of Gem County and beyond.  Supported by the Gem County Recreation District, the pool operates from May to August every summer.  The pool is fully staffed with Red Cross certified lifeguards and swim instructors as well as aquafit instructors and swim coaches in order to meet all aquatic needs of the community.  The pool is heated and sanitized through the use of chlorine and a high-rate filtration system.

The GCRD Pool is located in the northeast corner of the Emmett City Park in Emmett, Idaho at 301 N. Johns Ave.  Visit to register for any activities or contact us with any questions or comments.
