Starvaggi Memorial Pool & Park, located at 144 Starvaggi Drive, Weirton, has been the community's home of summer recreation since it opened in 1968.
The pool is olympic-size with two water slides and a water volleyball court. The park features top-of-the-line playground equipment to suit every type of kid, from toddlers to 12-year olds. Also on the park site are three tennis courts, two full basketball courts, a roller hockey court, a volleyball/badminton court, three bocce courts and three large picnic shelters.
The pool and grounds were contributed to the city of Weirton by Mr. and Mrs. Michael Starvaggi, in the name of Starvaggi Charities, Inc., and dedicated during the pool's grand opening on May 30, 1968.
Starvaggi Pool operates only during the summer season, Memorial Day Weekend through the third Sunday in August, and shelters can only be rented during the pool season. The Park Board begins taking shelter rental applications on the first business day of each new year at its flagship office, the Weirton Millsop Community Center, 3420 Main Street, Weirton, WV.
The park and playground remain open year round from dawn until dusk, weather permitting.
