About

Lily Flagg Pool is nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in Southeast Huntsville, Alabama. Lily Flagg is a private club with approximately 300 families. The pool was first opened in the summer of 1958. Through many improvements, Lily Flagg was transformed into a fun filled place to enjoy hot summer days. The pool offers a family atmosphere with many activities. The facility has three pools. Lily Flagg has a large 25 meter racing pool with a dedicated diving pool, a junior pool, and a baby pool. Two pavilions and several tables with umbrellas provide shade and a place for socializing and parties. Lily Flagg is one of the few private neighborhood pools in Huntsville with a low and high dive.
