Popular Facility Hours

Due to emergency maintenance, the Rec Pool is closed until further notice. A lighting fixture fell from the ceiling, and after investigating the cause, it has been determined there is a need to replace the entire lighting structure in the Rec Pool area. Until the replacements can be made, the Rec Pool is closed for safety. We are currently waiting for arrival of the replacement components and do not have an exact date for re-opening, but we anticipate the Rec Pool being closed through the entire month of February. We will post more information regarding an opening date as it becomes available. We apologize for any inconvenience.
