There are few protocols related to the Aquatic Center that we would like to share:

  • Locker rooms and showers are available to use at limited capacity.
  • You may bring a small bag and towels onto the pool deck.
  • If you would like to use a life jacket, noodle, etc., please bring your own.
  • Your visit to our facility will be limited to the reserved time slot.
  • All pool users must shower on the pool deck before swimming.

Children who are non-swimmers must have an adult in the water with them at all times. Anyone wishing to swim in the deep end must pass a lifeguard-administered swim test.
