Our History
The Antietam swimming pool is a fond reminder of Carsonia Park, which thrived in our area between 1896 and 1950.

The Carsonia Park pool, constructed in 1932 - always a favorite attraction - stood at the same location as the facility that we still enjoy today.

Ground was broken for the existing main pool in the early 1950s, as part of the Pennside housing development.
