Gold Star Pool

Gold Star Mothers Pool, located at 123 Berkshire Street, is open for the 2022 summer season.

Cambridge residents are invited to enjoy open swim at the facility, which features two ADA-compliant pools. Have fun and explore aquatics in the Beginner Pool (maximum depth of 3-6 ft.) and practice your strokes in our Lap Pool (or get relief from the heat by jumping into the Lap Pool’s 10 ft. deep end!).
