One swimmer per lane.


When can I reserve a swim time?

You can reserve up to 2 days before the swim time. For example, to reserve a time on June 18, you can sign up starting at 12 am June 16.

Please note: Members can only sign up for one 45-minute session per day.

What is the schedule for swim times?

All swim times will start 15 minutes after the hour and will run for 45 minutes.

On weekdays, sessions begin at 6:15 am and the last swim time begins at 5:15 pm.

Since the locker rooms are closed, how do I dress to swim and then change out of my wet swimsuit?

Come dressed in your swimsuit. After you swim, you will be able to use the locker room to change into dry clothes only.  Please note that showers are not available.

Can I reserve a lane to share with my partner or family?

No, only one person to a lane, even if they are in the same household. If a husband and a wife, or a family, want to swim at the same time, they each must have their own lane, so they will both need to sign up separately.

Will you take walk-ins?

A 15-minute grace period will be extended for members who have reserved a lane. After that, a walk-in is free to take their lane for the remaining 30 minutes of the session.
