NEW FOR SUMMER 2019:
 Explanded Tropical Tuesdays!  Tropical Tuesdays are dates where the public can swim into the evening! Tropical Tuesdays are a little different this year as we are offering Teen Nights and Public Swim Nights!  Public Swim nights are June 4, June 25, July 9, and July 30.  Teen Nights are new this season and are for those 13-18 years olds ONLY.  18 year olds must be 2019 high school graduates or those entering their senior year of high school.  Teen Nights are June 11, July 2, and July 16.  No outside food or drink is allowed on Tropical Tuesdays. Punch Cards are not allowed for use on Tropical Tuesdays.

Also new in 2019, Lap Swim has been changed to Adult Swim!  We now offer Adult Swim from 6:00 - 7:00 p.m.!  Adult Swim is limited to those 18 years and older and participants must not be in high school.  There will be no Adult Swim on Memorial Day or the 4th of July! Private Swimming Lessons and Aqua Zumba will take place at the same time as Adult Swim.

Join us on Fridays for FRIDAY FUN DAY!  Each Friday will have a special theme!  2019 themes include Favorite Sports Team Day, Superhero Day, Olympic Day, Cowboy Day, Pirate Day, America Day, Christmas in July, Shark Day, Star Wars Day, and Back to School Bash!  Join us each Friday for special music, decorations, costumes and more!
