Shore Acres is a quiet center where everyone knows your name. Within one acre you'll find an aquatic facility with one wade pool perfect for toddlers and a six lane pool, covered playground, half court basketball court, picnic shelter and a variety of programs for youth, teens and adults.
The center was originally an established club house and pool, and was purchased in 1970 from the local homeowners group.
