The Benstead Plunge was opened to the public in 1956. It is a heated Olympic sized 50 x 20 meter outdoor pool open year round. During the school year the bulkhead allows for multiple programs and provides a 25 yard and 25 meter course. Take advantage of this great facility by making swimming at the Plunge a daily part of your life! Locker rooms have heated showers and there are locks available to rent or you can bring your own. The pool is heated year-round to about 80° to 81°.
