Pool area usage

  • Entrance to pool areas is through the locker rooms.
  • Please use hallway only if required due to age of opposite sex children. The hallway entering the East Pool is a “Quiet Zone” due massage appointments taking place. Please use inside voices when in hallway outside East Pool area.

Locker room policy for children

  • Children must be accompanied by a parent/guardian in the locker rooms at all times.
  • Children four years old and younger can accompany a parent/guardian in the locker room, regardless of the child's gender but we ask that the parent/guardian use the designated family changing area of the locker rooms to change the child.
  • Children over four years of age will need to be accompanied by a same gender parent/guardian in the locker room. Otherwise they must use the family changing rooms located near the West Pool.

"The Meditation Info Session gave me hope that there’s something I can do as I make another transition in life, so that I don’t get bogged down by it. I learned that meditation is another tool to a healthy life, to help navigate it." - Ronna
