Tenino Quarry Pool. There’s nothing else like this anywhere! The Quarry Pool was originally a working sandstone quarry in the late 1800's and is now a low-cost, family-friendly recreation spot for all to enjoy.
The Legend.  Legend has it that quarrymen struck a spring that quickly filled the pit with water. As the water flooded the area, the workmen had to abandon their equipment and machinery. To this day, tools and heavy machinery still sit at the bottom of the site. In 2017, Mayor Wayne Fournier organized an exploratory dive and discovered that the water is so cold and still beyond the depth of 20 feet that visibility is near zero. However, the divers were able to touch bottom and locate some abandoned equipment by feel. Please visit the Thurston Talk website for a short article on the dive.
Today. With a lifeguard on duty at all times when the pool is open, youngsters enjoy the peaceful wading pool, while the deep water—complete with two diving boards and a waterfall—attracts the more adventurous, experienced swimmers.
