Relax in the swirl pool or push yourself further with laps for 10 minutes. Pool is sectioned off to ensure participants remain 6 feet apart during class. Call ahead to book your spot.

Babies float and play in a safety approved baby seat while caregivers exercise. A social time for babies and a workout time for caregivers.

Social Bubble Swim Lessons begin Feb 12/14/15/16


In an effort to continue to safely provide swimming lessons we will be offering Social Bubble Lessons for the foreseeable future.

Create your own groups:

  • Children must be in the same social bubbles and have similar swimming abilities.
  • Choose the timeslot that works for you.
  • Minimum enrollment of 2 children to a maximum of 5 per bubble/$51.13 per child for half hour lessons lasting 7 weeks. 

Instructors teach from the deck in order to comply with social distancing guidelines.

Level 2 and under: Parents will be required to accompany and support children IN the water. 


Both the main pool and wade pool are accessible. An Aquatic Wheelchair and Walker is available.

POOL FOULINGS result in multiple program cancellations.

  • If your child is feeling ill, skip the pool
  • Avoid meals before swimming
  • Toddlers who are not yet toilet trained must wear little swimmers
