The Benefits of Having a Swimming Pool in Palm Springs

Posted by Geoffrey Moore on Friday, November 5th, 2021 at 10:00am.


Palm Springs has a long history of being known as the city of swimming pools, as this oasis town had over 2,000 pools for residents to cool off in by the mid 1960s — meaning there’s an average of one pool for every six people that live in the town.

A quintessential aspect of Palm Springs, residents love knowing that there’s always a pool nearby to hop in and escape the California sun. 

From the palm tree lined streets of Palm Desert to the bright lights of Downtown Palm Springs, swimming pools are a popular feature all across Palm Springs.

In this post, we’ve come up with a list of reasons why life in Palm Springs is even better with a pool out your back door. 

Ease and Convenience In Your Backyard

While there are plenty of pools in Palm Springs, nothing beats the feeling of knowing that you can hop directly into your own pool after a long day.

A pool can also turn any backyard into the perfect spot for hosting classic Palm Springs pool parties with friends and family.

Swim In Privacy 

Private pools are also perfect for those looking to have a private place to swim when you’re not feeling like dealing with the crowds that head to public pools to beat the heat and enjoy the incredibly scenic views of the San Jacinto Mountains in the privacy of your own back yard. 

Improve the Resale Value of Your Home

Homes with swimming pools can increase the property value of your home by up to six per cent, making this a great investment for increasing the resale value on your already valuable Palm Springs home. 

Not only serving to improve the resale value of your home, pools also enhance the aesthetic quality of your backyard for you and future homeowners.

Exercise In Your Own Backyard

Having a pool also makes it easier to get your body moving with some healthy exercise, as you can step out of your home office and directly into this low-stress workout within the privacy of your own property. 

Swimming also relieves stress and tension, so there’s multiple health benefits to exercising in your backyard pool.


These are just a few of the reasons why having a pool can make life in Palm Springs even better. Contact me, Geoffrey Moore, for more information. I'm the premiere real estate expert in the Palm Springs area!
