Due to COVID-19: Once a deep-water pool reaches capacity, the pool will remain closed to new patrons for approximately two hours or until the next regularly scheduled pool check and water quality tests are conducted. These are normally scheduled daily at 1:15PM, 3:15PM, and 5:15PM.

At that time, all patrons will be required to vacate the facility. Once the pool check, water quality test, and any associated cleaning or maintenance has been completed (approximately 15 minutes), the pool will reopen to patrons waiting in line.

Once a wading pool reaches capacity, entrance into the facility will be on a one-in, one-out basis, until the pool is no longer at capacity. When conducting daily water quality tests and pool checks, patrons will be allowed to stay on deck but should remain several feet back from the edge of the pool.

Parking: Available in lot

Facilities: Contain restrooms, deep-water pool, and a lifeguard on duty. Call us for more information about requesting swim lessons.
