  • Open Swim

    All ages are welcome during our open swim hours! Open swim time allows the opportunity for young swimmers to practice their skills, or just play and have fun. An adult may be required to be in the water with children if your child does not meet the minimum height requirement. There will be designated lap swim lanes during this time, not reserved though. Children wanting to go in deep water (water above their head), will have to pass a Water Competency Test to use deep lanes or the diving board. Pre-registration is required! Drop in may be available, must have exact change, cash only. Please note: goggles with over the nose (face mask style) and inflatables are not permitted.
