Swimming Pools and Aquatics

Want to get some laps in, learn how to be a better swimmer, or get the kids some swim lessons? Lessons are offered for all skill levels. Swimming is a life long sport and a great way to stay fit! Both outdoor pools can be rented for unit functions or birthday parties during the months of June, July, and August.

The Aquatics Division is organized to provide a safe, healthy, all-inclusive, and enjoyable swimming environment for swimmers of all ages and abilities; promote self-improvement and physical fitness, and offer Learn to Swim lessons and lifeguarding instruction.
