The Frog Pond

The Frog Pond is a great place to hang out and relax during the summer. The pool has a zero-depth entry for those wanting to take their time and ease into the water. It also has a maximum depth of eight feet for those who want to make a splash and jump right in!

The Frog Pond has a children's pool equipped with a water-spouting whale and a bubbler. There are four slides in the big pool - three tube slides and a frog slide.

For those of you who just want to hang out in the sun, there is plenty of room for you, too!

We offer great concessions through the Lilly Pad Cafe. They have special menu options for all daycares that visit the Frog Pond (daycare visits only on Tuesdays and Thursdays, please; also call the MCPR office at (540) 382-6975 to let them know 24-hours ahead of time) - all they ask is 48 hours notice if you'd like to take advantage of these options. The Lilly Pad Cafe is brought to you by Hethwood Market. Please contact them at (540) 951-0990 for information.

Refund Policy

Upon entrance to the Frog Pond, you will be given a sales receipt. This receipt will not only allow you to re-enter the pool if you must leave, but can also be used as a voucher. At the bottom of your receipt, the time is printed at the time of payment; this will allow staff to see what time you entered the pool.

If the pool were to close for any reason within exactly 2 hours or less of your arrival, a pool pass will be given. No cash refunds will be given for any reason!

If you no longer have possession of your receipt, we cannot verify what time you entered the facility and no pass will be given. Please hold on to your receipt.

Inclement Weather Policy

If lightning is seen or thunder is heard in the area, you will be asked to exit the pool for 30 minutes. Additional reports will result in a restart of the 30-minute time period out of the water.
