Since we are strictly an 18+ facility, no children under the age of 18 are allowed in the facilities for our regular drop-in swims.

A parent or guardian who can swim must accompany children to the pool and be within the pool area to supervise the child. Parents/guardians are responsible for the children in their care while in the facility and must supervise them at all times.

Fun swims are offered most Sundays from 12:10-2:55pm. For a full schedule, including cancellations and adjustments, as well as more information, please see
