The Rec Pool is open Year-Round!

The doors have opened to our brand new aquatic center! The new facility features an enhanced activity pool, new competition pool, renovated locker rooms and a sand volleyball court. In the Fall, we look forward to hosting new Living Well classes, both on land and in the pool. The new facility is fully Wi-Fi enabled and utilizes solar energy to assist with heating.
