Summer is coming! Yay! Palestine TX Public Pool (Steven Bennett pool) will be open starting June 1st, 2023! …and it is FREE for Palestine City Residents!
The time has come for the City of Palestine residents to bring out their swimsuits and jump in Steven Bennett pool for FREE again this summer!
Pool passes are FREE for Palestine City residents (for up to 6 people, $5 for each extra person over 6). Pool passes can be picked up at Palestine, TX City Hall (504 N. Queen, Palestine, TX 75801). Pool pass pickups are from Monday–Friday 9am-Noon and 2-4pm. City residents will need to bring a copy of their water bill and an ID. Keep in mind that pool passes will only be given to the person listed on the water account. You must be the utility account holder or authorized user to pickup. If the account holder can’t pickup, call and add a user to the account for pickup. Renters with water paid by landlord are eligible too–just bring in a copy of your lease. Replacement pool passes are $30 for the first lost pass and $60 for the second and beyond.
Non City residents can purchase a pool pass for $60 for a family of 6.
