This policy will go into effect on Monday, July 1st and remain in effect until Labor Day.

Trying to escape the brutal summer or freezing winter? Come down to Sportspark and swim! Our recently refurbished, ADA accessible, pool is available for lap-swimming seven days a week. The pool sits amid stadium seating, giving the vital adult swimmer an ambiance of competition for their laps, or energetic kids added grandeur to their play. Lifeguards are on duty to ensure everyone is playing safely. Kickboards and other supplies for specific swim exercises are available poolside. Locker rooms with showers are available for men and women. Locks are not available but are required. Swim Caps are also sold for $5 and are required for entrance.
