Swirl Pool

The Swirl Pool or Spa is kept at 101-103 degrees F. It is open to those 15 and older when ever there is a scheduled Lap, Family, or Open Swim. Those who are pregnant or suffer from a medical condition, which makes immersion in hot water dangerous, are not permitted to use the spa.

Tot Pool

The Pool is kept at 86 degrees F and is open to those 6 and younger. Older people may use the tot pool if they are not disruptive and it’s not too crowded. The tot pool is open during Family and Open Swims.

Water Slide

The 180′ water slide is open intermittently during Open Swims. Those 6 and younger (and under 46 inches tall) must go down with an adult.

Lazy River

The lazy river is turned on for all Open and Family swims for patrons to go with the current. Sat 9:30-10:00a and Sunday 8:30-10:00a the river will be open for unstructured “”against the current”” exercise as part of the lap swim.
