During our normal operations, there are areas designated for lap swim and recreational swimming and a spacious pool-side lounge area with comfortable seating. The Aquatics Center has locker rooms and shower facilities, and trained lifeguards are on duty at all times the pool is open. The facility is well maintained so that you can easily enjoy your swim.
