Indoor Pool at the Rec Center
Located at the Recreation Center on Parkway Drive, the indoor pool provides swimmers and non-swimmers alike benefits from the many activities offered.

For the avid swimmer we offer lap swimming daily. For families and youth we have open swim times every afternoon as well as in the evenings. For those who simply prefer mild exercise and a slower pace, we offer adult only swim times. Each of these activities is included in daily admission costs as well as other admission packages. Please note that lap and adult swim times are for ages 16 and up only. Those 15 and under may swim during open swim times.

Specific times for swimming activities vary season to season. For exact pool and activity hours, please click on the printable pool schedule links below.
