Details about Peerless Pool
The Peerless Pool Complex in Saratoga Springs is a state-of-the-art aquatic facility that boasts two heated indoor pools, three outdoor pools and a variety of amenities. The complex features something for everyone from the novice swimmer to the experienced athlete, with lap lanes, diving boards, and water slides.
The main pool at the complex is an Olympic size pool with eight 25 yard lanes and five 50 meter lanes. It has depths ranging from 3 feet 8 inches to 9 feet 5 inches so swimmers can choose their preference based on skill level or desired activity. The other indoor pool is shallow, just 2 feet 4 inches deep and perfect for young children learning how to swim or just want to splash around.
And for the best part of the hot springs, there are two thrilling waterslides. The Typhoon slide stands 40 feet tall twisting riders through 180 degrees before dropping them into the splash zone. The second is the Blue Tornado which slides riders through almost 400 feet of twists turns before ending in the catch area below!
Amenities at Peerless Pool include sand volleyball courts, basketball courts, and picnic areas with grills. There is also an onsite snack bar serving hot food items and cold beverages.
