Can or will I share a lane?
No, lanes are exclusively for one person, no exceptions
Are the locker rooms open?
No, due to social distancing, cleaning and potential for disease transmission the Men’s and Ladies locker rooms will be temporarily closed.
Why is the Lap Swim price 10$ per swim?
Swimmers have their own lane for one hour, no longer a need to share or wait. We must clean and manage the building with additional tasks.
Why is the small pool not available to use during Lap Swim?
We no longer have enough personnel to open all areas of the building and social distancing guidelines are difficult to manage in the small pool
