Kernes Pool Is Open!!

We’re so excited to welcome back friends and family, old and new. For 50 years, you’ve been saying that Kernes Pool is warm, relaxing, welcoming, invigorating, refreshing, friendly, rejuvenating, nurturing, soothing, and FUN! It still is! Call 831-372-1240 to start your sessions.
Thanks to the City of Monterey the flooring around the pool has been replaced with soft tiles, and the parking area, walkways and patio are all new concrete. We also resurfaced the inside of the pool and painted and landscaped the facility.What’s not new? Our welcoming and caring staff!
Kernes Pool follows the most up-to-date CDC guidelines and safety protocols.
