The swimming hours will start with open swim (Monday - Friday) from 1 PM to 5 PM. Lap swim is scheduled for 5 PM to 6 PM. Each day will conclude with a public swim time from 6 PM to 9 PM. Pool hours on Saturday are 1 PM to 7 PM and on Sunday from 2 PM to 7 PM. Swim season ends in August—not because it gets too cool to swim but because our life guards start doing their fall high school and college activities. We also see a marked drop off in attendance once school starts.

Single pass $ 90.00
Pool Parties will be $50.00/hr for the first 25 swimmers and $1.50 per swimmer over 25.
