Shades Cliff Pool is a private family swim club located in the heart of Hoover, Alabama.  The club was the brainchild of several forward thinking community members who knew this location would be perfect for a community pool.

The facility was built during the winter of 1963-1964 and first opened to its members in the summer of 1964.  The facility consists of a bathhouse with dressing rooms, an L-shaped pool with a 25-meter, 6 lane lap area and a 12′ diving well with 2 3-meter springboard diving boards, and a small separate wading pool for the smallest of our members.

Since its inception, the pool has offered competitive swim and dive teams as well as free swim lessons for its members.
