Healthy Swimming

Remember, you share the pool water with everyone. You can help keep germs from causing recreational water illnesses by practicing good hygiene and not swimming when sick. Additional practices to help keep germs out of the pool include ensuring your kids take restroom breaks, changing diapers at diaper-changing areas only, and showering before swimming.  Limited handouts are available at the Outdoor Pool Welcome Station/Check-in Counter. For additional information, visit the CDC website for Healthy Swimming. See Hours of Operation for scheduled closures. Closures and/or schedule modifications may occur as needed.
