Aquatics at the Recreation Center take place in our outdoor, Olympic-size swimming pool. The pool is heated and is open year-round. The pool is always open for lap swimming during open facility hours; however, it closes 30 minutes prior to the facility. We also offer a variety of year-round and seasonal programs.
Children under 16 must be accompanied AND supervised by a parent/guardian at all times.
