Important Outdoor Pool Reminders
- Children must be at least 48 inches tall to use the large bowl slide.
- Swimwear having zippers, rivets, or buckles damage the slide and are not permitted.
- ALL toddlers MUST wear a swim diaper.
- FOR YOUR SAFETY: Watches, necklaces, earrings, and other jewelry cannot be worn in the pool areas.
- No outside food, beverages, or coolers allowed.
- Children age 13 and under must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
Swim Diaper Policy
ALL toddlers MUST wear a swim diaper along with a swimsuit. This guideline has been adopted for the health and safety of all patrons who swim in our facility and is strictly enforced. Swim diapers are available for purchase at the Front Desk for a minimal cost.
We’re happy to work with troop leaders to complete most aquatic badges. In order to schedule a time for a troop, troop leaders should email us a list of badge requirements.
To provide the best experience for our patrons, it is our goal to keep the pool open at all times. However, there are some situations that necessitate temporary closure of the pool.
We do not close the Indoor pool for thunderstorms or lightning, but we do need to clear the pool area if the tornado sirens are activated. In this event, we will clear everyone from the pool and pool deck into a safe part of the building such as the locker rooms.
We also close the pool if fecal matter or vomit is found in the pool. These are temporary pool closures and will be handled in the manner directed by the Jefferson County Health Code.
Lastly, we may also need to close for unforeseen maintenance issues. These happen on rare occasions and are done to maintain a safe environment.
