At the Aquatics Center we have an Olympic sized pool which is great place to cool off and participate in

one of our many programs. 

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 when the pool is open. The facility is well maintained so that you can easily enjoy your swim. Use of the pool is always free for Active Duty. PT time is available for units with 20 people or more. In the event of severe weather the pool will close, and will remain closed for 30 minutes after the last sighting of lightning or thunder.

Policies and Regulations
