Swimming Pools

On May 22 we made the tough decision to keep all our deep-well pools, two indoor pools and three of our aquatic parks closed for the season. (The closed aquatic parks are Cool Waters, Schulz Aquatic Center and Pelican Cove. The Hoyt Park Pool, operated by the non-profit Friends of Hoyt Park, is currently planning to open for the summer of 2020.)

This was an incredibly difficult choice to make because we know what our pools mean to the community. Factors contributing to this decision were physical distancing recommendations, limits on group sizes, the shortage of available lifeguards, the drastic toll the pandemic has had on the county budget and significantly reduced parks staffing levels.

We have opened a good number of our wading pools and splash pads to provide relief from the summer heat, offering opportunities equitably distributed across the park system.

Aqua Fitness

Aqua Zumba, or the Zumba® pool party, gives new meaning to working out. Splashing, stretching, twisting and shouting are all part of the workout.

Aqua Zumba classes bring together traditional aqua fitness disciplines with the Zumba formula and philosophy — using a party-like atmosphere for an exhilarating workout with exotic rhythms set to Latin and international beats.

Each pool has a lobby, indoor pool deck area, a concessions area and soda machine. The pools range in depth from 3 feet to 12 feet and have diving boards. Water volleyball or basketball equipment is available for added water fun.
