Welcome to NWB!

Since 1964, Northwest Branch Pool has offered a variety of family activities in an ideal spot for families to spend summer days. At Northwest Branch pool, our mission is to provide a safe, inclusive, caring pool community, in which all of our members feel a sense of acceptance and belonging, and a responsibility to encourage these feelings in other members. We value:

  • A safe, inclusive, caring environment that is integrated into the fabric of our community;
  • Integrity and maintaining the highest ethical standards by communicating honestly and transparently;
  • Treating everyone with respect and embracing diverse opinions while promoting the ideals of inclusiveness, equality and mutual respect;
  • Fostering every member with a sense of ownership of the pool.

Each member of the Northwest Branch pool community is responsible for fostering an atmosphere imbued with dignity, respect, tolerance, appreciation of diversity and positive regard for all members of our community. We do this by nurturing a community culture free from racism, religious intolerance, sexism, ageism, homophobia, harassment, discrimination against those with disabling conditions, or discrimination based upon an individual’s political views or beliefs. All members of the community are accountable for their own behavior and actions.
