An absolute must for hot summer days!  There is something for all swimmers at this Olympic size swimming pool, a shallow area for little ones, a deep end with a slide, and swimming lanes for the professional swimmer.   The Coonskin Swimming Pool is operated by the YMCA of Kanawha Valley.  Reach out  for your next pool party at ymcaofkv.org or call 304-341-8014.
