Our Aquatics programs combine fun & safety for all ages and populations.

Our sparkling 25-yard, 170,000-gallon pool plays home to water-loving swimmers with varying interests: those diving in for adult swim, parent-child swim, private and semi-private instructional swim classes — even pool party and school rentals.
Cautiously patrolling our pool decks, our instructors are alert, friendly and qualified. Our lifeguards are certified by the United States Swimming Organization and the Red Cross, and together have multiple decades of experience.
The pool’s schedule includes swimming information for swimmers of all ages, and features separate hours for men and women.
