SWIMMING POOLS & AQUATICS:
Indoor/Outdoor Olympic 50-Meter Pool With 80-degree water temperature and a removable roof system, this pool is ideal for year-round training. Moveable bulkhead allows the pool to be divided into two 25-meter pools.

Indoor 25-Meter Pool
Perfect for swim lessons, water exercise, therapy and recreation swimming. Features comfortable 85-degree water, 3.5- to 12-foot water depth, 1-meter and 3-meter diving boards and rope swing.

Indoor Children’s Pool
Shallow water, easy-entry stairs and warm 90-degree water make this pool great for young children. Child-friendly features include duck-shaped slide, a giant fish and other fun splash features.

Outdoor Activity Pool
Open June to early September. A water wonderland for the child in all of us, this 85-degree pool offers a large flume slide, interactive water features, beach entry to 3.5-foot water depth and a soft-bottom surface. Spend the day on our large deck, complete with lounge chairs, picnic tables and shade structure.

Hot Tub, Dry Sauna & Steam Room
These coed amenities are perfect for post-workout relaxation. Ages: 16 & up

Lap Swim Etiquette

Designated lap swim lanes are available throughout the day in either the indoor pool or Olympic – 50 Meter pool (seasonally covered). Sharing lanes is expected. Lanes are designated according to speed so please choose a lane appropriate for your speed. Please swim counter clockwise whenever more than one person is in a lane. Stop at the walls only and move out of the way of oncoming swimmers. Masters swim practice, Bend Swim Club and High School sports (water polo and swimming) use the deep end at times. Lanes in the shallow end of the pool are available during these times.

Pool Etiquette

Play your part and help keep pools clean & safe.

  • Take a quick shower prior to entering a pool.
    Rinsing removes microscopic dirt, body oils and fluids, reducing the smell of chlorine on your body and around the pool.
  • Skip the body sprays, colognes and perfumes.
    Scented items react with chlorine and create smelly chloramine off-gasses, not the intended scent.
  • Mom was right. Try to go, even if you don’t think you need it.
    A preventative restroom break is best for kiddos and grownups. For small kids, use pool diapers for those who aren’t reliably toilet-trained. They're at the front desk.
  • Don't share the germs.
    Please don't use the pool if you or your child have had a fever or diarrhea in the past two weeks.
  • Aim for the deep end.
    No diving, except in the deep ends of the pools.
  • No monkey business.
    No running, roughhousing or unsafe behavior.

Supervision Requirements

  • Outdoor Water Slide:
    Children 6 years and younger and under 42" must be accompanied and supervised at all times by a responsible person 14 years or older.
  • Children 6 years and younger and under 42":
    Must be supervised at all times by a responsible person 14 years or older.
    Must be accompanied in the water by an adult if they are a non-swimmer.
  • Youth 7 years and older or above 42:
    Direct adult supervision is recommended especially for non-swimmers.
    Non-swimmers must stay where they can stand unless accompanied by a responsible adult or wearing a lifejacket.
  • Small Children’s Pool:
    The Small Children's Pool is reserved for children six and under and others who are unsafe in the larger pools. Older sibling/friends are permitted when there is room and only if playing appropriately. Adult supervision is required for all children swimming in the children’s pool. Help us keep this a safe and enjoyable pool for young children!

Water Features:

  • Deep Water Swim Requirements – Children must be able to comfortably swim one width of the pool (half on front, rolling over and half on back) to swim in the deep end or use the diving boards or rope swing. Lifeguards may require that you demonstrate your swim skills before using the deep end features. Lifejackets and/or catching and assisting children are not allowed.
  • Hot Tub – Children ages 5 and younger are not allowed in the hot tub. Youth ages 6 – 15 are allowed in the hot tub during family swim times when accompanied by an adult guardian. During recreation swim times, the hot tub is limited to 16 and older.
  • Steam Room & Dry Sauna – reserved for adults 16 and over.

Flotation Devices & Water Toys

  • Tubes, play mats, water noodles and balls are normally provided at recreation swim times. These toys may not be used in deep water. They may also be limited to certain pools or areas of the pool due to crowding and lifeguard visibility.
  • Lifejackets are encouraged for non-swimmers, which we provide for use. People wearing lifejackets may not use the diving boards, rope swing or large slide.
  • Water wings and assisted flotation devices are permitted but may not be used as a substitute for supervision, lifejackets or swimming ability. Non-swimmers using water wings or partial flotation devices will be required to have an adult with them in the water at all times.
  • Outside toys must be approved by the staff before taking them into the pools. Small and/or hard objects (dive rings, torpedoes,etc.) toys that absorb water (nerf balls), squirt guns, fins and larger inflatables will not be allowed.
