Community pool open with preventative measures

The Community Pool is now open for lap swim on a reservation-only basis. Swimmers will be able to sign up for a 45-minute lap swim reservation once per day and up to three days per week. Reservations can be made online for one week at a time, with new reservations posted every Friday. Click here to sign up.

The following safety measures have been instituted: 

No dropping in is permitted. When patrons arrive at the pool, staff will check in all registered participants and conduct a health screening, including temperature check, before patrons can begin swimming. Swimmers and pool staff must wear a face covering at all times while in the facility, except while swimming. Restrooms will be available, but showers and changing facilities will be closed. Additionally, swimmers must bring their own pool equipment (e.g. kickboards, pull buoys, etc.) with them. A list of preventative measures taken to ensure patron safety is posted on the registration website.

Pool open for lap swims on reservation-only basis

If a swimmer purchased an annual pool pass for 2020, the Community Services department has issued a pro-rated refund for the remainder of this year and will mail a refund check to the address listed on one’s account. 

To sign up for lap swimming, visitors must log in or create an account before making reservations. When choosing times, swimmers will be able to select the specific days they want to swim. For example, if you want to swim at 9 a.m. on Thursday and at 3 p.m. on Saturday, you would select 9 a.m. from the list, and use the “select dates” function to pick a day from the calendar, then go to 3 p.m. and chose Saturday from the calendar. When the time you selected is full, it will appear as a gray block on the calendar and will not be added to your cart.
