Family Swim
Recreational swim for parents and children. Enjoy the shallow water, playmats, water basketball, and more. Children under 16 years old must be accompanied in the water by a parent or guardian. Non-swimmers and children under 48” in height must have a parent or guardian in the water within arms reach at all times. Single adults and tots two years and younger are welcome.

Adult/Preschool Swim
