This is a great little place with 2 big slides, a whirlpool, a lazy river, a rock wall drop into the water, diving boards, & kiddie water playground. Today the kona water ice truck was also there. The pool area & grounds are nice. There...More

An incredible array of water activity areas for a small town; it's really a water park. The great thing is that there are areas appropriate for all ages, from toddlers to teens. An area with a current. Water slides, and now a climbing wall! I...More

My kids (ages 4, 8,11) loved this pool. The lazy river and whirlpool were fun - great way to spend a hot summer day. This was our first visit, and our only complaint was no concession stand. They have vending machines for drinks and snacks.

This pool is not really a swimming pool for children. It is more a bump into each other pool. There is very little space or depth to test their skills. It is more a place to of gimmicks ie the lazy river, the buckets dropping...More

While the summer in central Pennsylvania is typically short and sweet, try to find time to visit the Welch Community Pool. On warm days, it's an oasis of cool water filled with energetic kiddos and their parents. Recently renovated, the pool now features exciting water...More

It gets very crowded and full of kids that just want to play, so you can't really do laps or even swim around much. This place is great for kids and young teens under 15. Adults, fitness enthusiasts, and more swimmers looking for a place...More

We frequented Welch pool throughout the summer of 2013. My kids and I love this facility. There are two pools. One pool features a small slide for younger kids (big hit with my 3-year-old), a lazy river, sprinkler area, and 2 larger slides for people...More

This facility is severely overcrowded and unable to meet current demand. There is barely room to move around outside the pools let alone in them. Kids reunning around seemingly without supervision.
