Early pool use by appointment

Are you interested in an early morning lap swim at the pool this summer? We can’t make that happen on a regular basis due to staff scheduling, payroll and pre-programmed lessons and camps, but we can work with groups who would like to schedule specific dates or weeks. For instance, if an organization wanted to commit to a week, or several weeks over the summer, and pay the hourly rental rate, we would schedule the staff to open early

Summer brochure in the works

The REC Department is starting to move into “Pool Season” and we’re looking at new programs and opportunities for the community. We’ve heard over the years that an early morning lap swim would be an asset to the community.
