During recreation swim times, the shallow end play area is open and bag check service is available at no cost. Children under 8 must be accompanied in the water by an adult. Two children under 8 are admitted free with a paying adult. To enter deep water each person must demonstrate his swimming ability to the lifeguard.

Adult lap swim is open to persons age 16 and older who wish to swim for fitness. Please swim in the appropriate speed lane and use proper lap swim etiquette (circle swim) if there are more than two swimmers in the lane. The fast lanes are always the deepest lanes available and the slow lanes are in the shallow end. Pool diagrams showing the lanes available for each time period are in the front lobby. A pace clock, kickboards and pull-buoys are available on deck.
