Neighborhood Aquatic Centers
Neighborhood Aquatic Centers feature a 4 or 5 lane lap pool with a climbing wall and basketball goal, an open flume or closed flume slide, toddler pool with an interactive play structure, shade structures, group pavilion, picnic tables and lounge chairs, a bath house with family changing room, lockers and a concession stand.
The Neighborhood Aquatic Centers will open for weekend operation June 5-6 and June 12-13. They will open for daily operation along with all other aquatic centers and community pools June 19 through August 15. The Aquatic Centers will remain open on weekends only depending on seasonal staff availability through Labor Day. Several Covid-19 precautions will be in place, including temperature checks, social distancing while waiting in line, and mask requirements when not in the water.
Socially Distanced Seating and Capacity
We have created socially distanced "seating pods" consisting of a picnic table or a group of lounge chairs at each facility. Each seating pod is intended to accommodate one family group and will serve as a place for them to gather when not in the water. We are defining a family group as individuals who are attending the facility together (typically from the same household) and are regularly in close contact with each other. The maximum capacity for The Community Aquatic Centers for the 2021 season is 80 based on the deck space and the available seating. Seating pods will be available to guests on a first-come first-serve basis and cannot be reserved, "saved," or moved. As a courtesy to larger families we ask that guests not occupy seating pods that are larger than their family group.
Because we are operating at a lower capacity, we are breaking up the operating day into "sessions." Sessions will be 2 hours at aquatic centers and swimming pools. Although the sessions may be shorter than the time you may typically visit and have defined start and stop times, there will be less people at the facility than you are used to seeing, which will give you more space in the water, shorter lines at the slides, and less crowding at the play structures. We hope that you will find your visit to be more enjoyable, knowing you will have a place to sit, more open space to enjoy in the water, and shorter wait times to enjoy your favorite activity. Facilities will be cleared of guests and sanitized between each session.
