Q: How big is the pool?

Q: Is there a separate baby/toddler pool?
A: Yes! However parents are expected to watch over their little ones as lifeguards do not oversee that pool.
A: Is there a beginner swim area that is shallow?
Q: Yes! And it is monitored by a lifeguard. The steps are large and gradual with a pool depth about 3 feet.
Q: How many swim lanes are there?
A: Lane setup varies per throughout the season—but there is a max of 6.
Q: Is there a diving area?
A: Yes! It is 9 feet.
Q: What areas of Open Swim have lifeguards?
A: The shallow end, swim lanes and diving area are all monitored by one or two lifeguards based on how busy the pool is that day. They do not monitor the baby/toddler pool.
In the main pool, all children must exit every 45 minutes for a break. This is a good time to take a breather, reapply sunscreen or enjoy a light snack. Lifeguards will blow the whistle at the start and end of the break.
