Parks & Grounds
Our outdoor swimming pools are open from Memorial Day Weekend to Labor Day (click here for operating hours).
The Olympic-size swimming pool (shown right) is heated, contains over 500,000 gallons of water. It reaches a depth of 13-feet in the deepest end (which is where the diving boards and lap swim lanes are located), and has two 145 foot dual twist tube water slides. Adult swim in the 3 dedicated lap lanes is conducted for 15-minutes at the top of every hour (during this time, anyone 17 and younger are not permitted in the pools).
The Whale pool is a "zero depth" interactive water playground for children 6-years and younger. This pool is also heated and contains a variety of play features such as a water slide, spray toys and a cascading water fall.
