Dreamland Pool first opened in 1926 and the original construction included a three-story pavilion. The top floor of the pavilion included a dance floor, where many notable Big Bands played though the 1930s and 1940s.
The pool itself measures 125 feet by 250 feet, and was once known as the largest public swimming pool east of the Mississippi River. The popular pavilion was destroyed by fire in 1972. The pool was conveyed to the City of Kenova in 1973.
Presently, the Kenova Parks & Recreation Board oversees the operation and management of the facility. In recent years, much has been done to renovate the pool and keep it a viable park. In 2008 a professional grade beach volleyball court was added and the basketball court was resealed and lined. The pool is also home to a skate park.
