Summer FUN at EARC Pool!

East Asheville Recreation Club has been making wonderful summer memories for families since 1968! Our pool is open from Memorial Day through Labor Day (and sometimes a bit longer). Join the Fun at EARC this summer! Memberships are limited.

2018 Applications No Longer Being Accepted

EARC has reached capacity for the first time in over a decade and we are no longer taking memberships for the 2018 season.

Thank you everyone for your excitement this 2018 season! 


We do have a waiting list for any cancellations which may open up spots.  Email us for info.


See Everyone Saturday!

Health Inspector visited yesterday and we’re legal for the year 🙂


New Pool Furniture is being delivered this Friday morning!

New umbrellas were delivered today!

Pool water is heated for the little ones comfort too!


Come enjoy the start of your 2018 EARC season this Saturday at 10:30 AM!


As many of you know, the past few years have seen money spent on the pool’s critical infrastructure needs.  These improvements were mostly hidden in the pump room (filter, new pump motor, rebuilding pump, etc.) or were literally underground (750 feet of new water line).

Thank you for hanging in there with us cause this year you’ll get actual visible “eye candy” that will make you posteriors more comfortable in the form of new pool furniture.  A total of 60 new chaise lounges, 10 new tables with 40 new chairs and 10 new umbrellas will greet you and your bottoms this summer season.

This is it! The Last Chance!

In the famous words of disco icon Donna Summer, this is your last chance!

This weekend marks our last operational hours for the 2017 EARC season – but please be reminded that we’ll open the pool next Saturday, September 23rd, from 1-230p for our 2nd Annual Doggie Days, benefitting Brother Wolf and the good work they do for our furry friends.

We hope to see you this weekend and thanks for being part of another terrific summer at the EARC.

Hours for Saturday, September 16th: 1030a-730p

Hours for Sunday, September 17th:  1-5p

We’ll see you next year!
