The Local Scoop

For those on vacation with smaller children we suggest taking them to the Roscoe Poteet Swimming pool in Sylva, NC. This pool is owned by the town of Sylva and operated by the Jackson County Parks & Recreation Department. The area has kid friendly attractions such as dump buckets, mushroom fountains and spraying features. Children under the age of 4 are admitted for free. if you are thinking of having a private party, that too is available on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 7 pm to 9 pm and can be reserved by contacting the Jackson County Parks/Recreation Department. We recommend using this area to the moms and dads that need a place to take smaller children that might not be able to go on the nearby hikes or other adventures that others in the family or group would like to do.
