Pool FAQ

Can I rent towels?

Yes. It is $1 to rent a towel. When you rent a towel, we ask that you leave a personal item at the front desk (keys, pass, ID, etc.) We will hold onto this personal item while you use the facility. Don't forget to pick up your item when you return the towel!

What about locks and lockers?

Lockers are available on a first-come, first-served basis. You may borrow a lock from Guest Services in exchange for a personal item (keys, pass, ID, etc.) We will hold onto the personal item while you utilize the facility. When you are finished with the lock, exchange it for your personal item at the Guest Services desk.


Why are showers required before I swim?

Due to the high pH levels in personal hygiene products (shampoos, deodorants, lotions, etc.), chemical imbalances may occur in the pool if patrons do not shower first.

  • 6 and 7 years old who have not passed the swim test
