The pool will be closed to family use with scheduled lifeguards starting Monday, October 1st.

We have also received a number of requests for Adult Only Lap Swim Time and have had a few members willing to volunteer their time to open and close the pool area to accommodate this event. This lap time will be for ADULTS ONLY and will be a Swim At Your Own Risk event. There will be NO lifeguards scheduled or present. Children will be asked to leave the pool deck area if they are present. We are currently working with American Pool to install and replace the pool's broken water heater so we may be able to extend the lap swim schedule later into the fall season. The current schedule will be weekday afternoons from 2:00 PM until 4:00 PM and will start once the seasonal daily pool schedule ends on Monday, August 17th. Please understand that this schedule is flexible and is subject to change if the demand warrants or if the circumstances change.
