General Information
The Parks & Recreation Swimming Pool is available for public reservations and rentals. Rental of the Swimming Pool requires a minimum of one week lead time. This allows us to coordinate with department staff and ensure that we have adequate coverage to facilitate your rental. Please note that all facility rules apply for private parties, events, and programs. Ensure that you review our facility rules and guidelines prior to confirming your rental.

Reservations, rentals and refunds
  • All rentals must be submitted as a reservation request to be reviewed by the Department Director or designee.
  • The Swimming Pool is available to rent from 6:00AM-10:00PM, unless otherwise posted.
  • Rental of the Swimming Pool requires one (1) week lead time. This will allow us to coordinate with department staff. 
  • Facilities WILL NOT BE RESERVED until the reservation request has been reviewed for approval and paperwork and payment are completed. Payment in full is expected prior to the facility use.
  • The fee is based on the time that you are going to use the facility. Please consider the time you will need to set up and breakdown for your event. During birthday pool rentals, this time includes pool time and party time. Please include all the time you will need in your rental reservation request.
  • An aquatics inflatable device is available as a rental add-on, upon request. The inflatable requires additional lifeguard staff; therefore, an extra fee per hour is applied to the total cost of the rental.

Use and Activities
  • Each user group is responsible for any damages to the facility. The misuse of the facility or failure to conform to the rules of this permit will be sufficient reason for denying future facility rental.
  • There is a cleaning deposit for the Swimming Pool. We ask that this be in check form and after the activity is over, the deposit may be returned. Cleaning and deposits are fully refundable if the facility is left in its original condition.
  • We ask that you leave the room you reserved in the same condition as when you arrived. All cleaning must be completed, and decorations removed immediately following the conclusion of your event (or by prior arrangements). Please do not use staples or nails on the walls or floor.
  • All tables and chairs must be returned to their original storage area or area designated by the facility staff. Tables and chairs must be cleaned before storage. Please indicate that you wish to have tables and chair at the time of your reservation as there is a limited supply.
  • Cleaning supplies, toilet paper, paper towels and garbage bag liners are stored in the facility laundry room as needed (across hall from office space).
  • If food and drink are to be in the pool lobby, the floor will need to be vacuumed and garbage taken out to dumpster in front of the Community Center (Church Street).
