Frequently Asked Questions...

What are the pool hours?

General
Tuesday - Saturday: Noon - 5pm
Sunday: 1-5pm

Lap Swim
Tuesday - Saturday 8:00-10:00am 

Do I need bring any equipment (floaties etc.) with my child for swimming lessons?
No, just bring the child ready to get in the water!

Do I need to get in the water with my child during swimming lessons?
Only for the 3-5 yr old age group. For all other ages, the parents are not in the water with the child.

How do I determine what Level of class my child should take?
Most children will be Level 1 or 2. If you are not sure, register for a Level 1 or 2 class and the instructors will assess whether the child should be in a higher level.

What happens if it rains during swimming lessons? During a pool party?
We will do our best to make up that day during the two-week timeframe of the lessons.

If a pool party is cancelled for weather before it begins then you do not have to pay for the rental, though the deposit is forfeited. No make up date is guaranteed.

If a pool party is cancelled after it has begun there are no refunds and the full amount of hours are due to the lifeguards regardless of how much time they actually were there.

What happens if there is thunder and lightning after I've paid to swim for the day?
If the weather clears, you are allowed to return the same day without paying to re-enter. If the pool closes for the day, however, we issue "rain checks", subject to manager approval.

Is there a specific time for adult lap swimming?
Yes, 8:00am-10:00am Tuesday through Saturday. Also during open swim days, the pool is cleared of children the last 15 minutes of every hour so that adults may swim.

Do I have to be a Polk County resident to swim at the pool?
No, anyone may swim as long you pay the entry fee or have a pool pass.

Can I bring lunch or other food into the pool?
YES! You may bring food and drinks from home (no glass containers) and consume them at either picnic area.
