Ray Williamson Pool

      A six lane 25-yard pool was built in 1970 as an outdoor pool. In 1977 a roof was added to fully enclose the pool. The pool is the home site for Bainbridge Island High School Swimming, Diving, Water Polo teams, Bainbridge Island Swim Club (BISC), and Bainbridge Aquatic Masters team (BAM). In 2012 a solar water heating system was installed to reduce heating costs during the summer month. In 2011 a Hanovia UV system installed to increase water and air quality.
