Our pools are now open!

We're excited to be able to offer recreational and lap swimming once again. In order to continue to minimize the spread of COVID-19, our pool policies have been updated. Please read our policies carefully so you know what to expect when reserving space or entering the pool.

Reservation Policies

  • Pool access will be granted by reservation only
  • At this time, we are asking members to make reservations by household with the following limitation
    •    Up to 2 household members per lap lane
    •    Up to 6 household members in the slide area or shallow end


Pool Policies

  • All facility policies apply on the pool deck as well including mask and social distancing guidelines
  • Please arrive dressed to swim
  • Move clockwise around the pool deck (stay to the left) and follow all posted and verbal instructions
  • When there is space available at your reserved location, place your belongings on the chair provided and enter the water
  • At the end of your swim session, please disinfect the chair and any other surfaces touched with the provided disinfectant
  • Please be respectful of other swimmers waiting to use the pool
