Pool Rules Please read these rules before your first visit so you will be prepared.
Family Recreation Swim Drop in during the Rec Swim Hours indicated on the pool schedule for time to play in the pool. On warm days, it tends to be busy so a waitlist may be used when we are full. There is no guaranteed entry during Rec Swim hours.
Swim Wear Required For safety and pool maintenance reasons, all swimmers are expected to wear appropriate swim attire (swimsuits). Rash guards and swim shirts may be worn, but no cotton t-shirts, tanks, street clothes, etc. All babies and toddlers under 4 must wear a swim diaper (no regular diapers).
Admission & Supervision Requirements for Children For safety reasons, all children 8 and under must be attended to by and supervised at arms distance in the water and deck area at all times by an adult, with a limit of two children per adult. Children 9-13 may swim with an adult supervising in the facility. We understand that some children who are under 9 may be excellent swimmers, but we enforce this policy for all drop-in swimmers, regardless of skill level. Please do not ask staff to bend the rules. Ages 13-17 may participate in Recreation Swim with a parent-signed waiver
