The Borough of Dormont invites you to enjoy the Dormont Pool and asks your cooperation in abiding by the following rules and regulations for your safety and everyone’s enjoyment. By purchasing a pool membership, paying the daily admission fee, or renting the facility, you agree to follow our policies, guidelines, and rules:

This break gives the lifeguards the opportunity to scan an empty pool area.
