As the summer swim season gets underway, residents are encouraged to become familiar with the safety rules posted at the pools. Children are at high risk for water-related accidents and it is important that they are closely supervised at all times while in and around the pool.
See a pool safety video.
Because safety is the priority for Recreation Department programs, it may be necessary to temporarily halt admission to pools when capacity is reached. Swimmers will be admitted as soon as space becomes available.
