Swimming for Fun and Fitness - All in One Place

Offering exhilarating activities and programs for swimmers of every age and skill level. Our facility is staffed by friendly, professional lifeguards, and interactive classes are taught by experienced instructors who offer the highest level of instruction.

Swimming for all ages and abilities

Swimming is one of the most effective exercises because of its low-impact nature. People of all ages and levels of ability can benefit from it. Our six lane, 25-yard lap pool is always available for lap swimming during regular hours with dedicated lap lanes. Even during class times, two or more lanes remain open. Our Kroll Family Aquatics Center is staffed by a professional lifeguard at all times. Any of our trained professionals are happy to assist you. This pool is kept at a comfortable 82.5°F and is 3.5ft to 4.5ft to accommodate swimmers of all abilities.

Learning to Swim

Our heated kiddie pool is a perfect place to have a great time with your child! The kiddie pool goes from 6 inches to 18 inches deep and is a great place to get a child acclimated to the water, build confidence and give our young swimmers a place to play and have fun even at an early age. Getting started early is the key to success, and our kiddie pool is a great place to start!

Relaxing at the Spa

Our hot tub is the perfect place to relax after a workout and to relieve aches and pains from exercise, sports and work. Spa use is limited to eight people and those using the spa should observe all guidelines and only use the spa for no more than 15 minutes. The spa is kept at 102°F and is drained regularly to ensure clean, comfortable water for our members.
