Open Swim

Come join the fun at the pool! Open to the community 7 days per week with lifeguards on duty at times. No registration required, just drop in.

Description

The pool is open to the community 7 days per week. Lifeguards are on duty at all times during open swim. No registration required, just drop in.

When you visit the pool for Open Swim, you will receive a wristband good for the entire day. Wristbands differentiate swimmers from non-swimmers and help our guards preserve Open Swim areas of the facility for open swimmers. A non-swimmer is someone accompanying a swimmer who doesn’t enter the water at any time. Even getting a toe wet requires a wristband because our lifeguards are then responsible for your water safety.

Children 5 years and under must have a parent/guardian in the pool, within arm’s reach at all times.

Children 6 - 12 years must have a parent/guardian on the pool deck supervising them, unless they are attending a registered class or program.
