High Point City Lake Park

602 W. Main St. 
Jamestown, NC 27282


High Point City Lake Park was first opened in 1933. The pool, once the largest in the southwest United States, opened in 1935.   Throughout the years there have been many changes and improvements made to the park. In January 2023, we opened the Meeting & Event Center where once stood the first gymnasium in High Point. A new pedestrian bridge crosses the Arnold J. Koonce, Jr. City Lake, connecting the park to the High Point Greenway, Bicentennial Greenway and Piedmont Environmental Center. The new Aquatic Center will open on May 27, 2023.
