The Alfond Swimming Pool serves as the home for Rollins varsity men's and women's swimming teams and is the campus' leisure destination on most sunny days.
Due in large part to a generous donation from benefactor Harold Alfond, the pool was constructed in 1972 and modernized in 1997. The original design incorporated a large concrete spectator area and diving platforms. For the renovation, the bleachers were removed and modern locker rooms were added. Later, a Daktronics video scoreboard was mounted on the main building. New blocks were added in 2011.
Blessed with a tremendous view overlooking Lake Virginia, the 25-yard, eight-lane pool is heated for winter use and cooled for swimming in the summer.
