POOLS & SCHEDULES

There are two pools: Buchanan Park Recreation Center (BPRC) and Wulf Recreation Center (WRC)

Due to COVID-19, access to pools is restricted.  

  • Lap swimming available (two people per lane) during the temporary hours of operation.  It will be a first come, first serve basis. If we are at capacity, we will take your name and phone number and ask you to sit in your car until a lane is open. 
  • Family Swim Time is available at BPRC and WRC. At BPRC, a family can rent the zero-depth, vortex, and splashdown area for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Water features and the big green slide are available at certain times and days (there is a slightly higher fee). At WRC, your family can rent the two center lap lanes and use of the diving board. Reservations are required. Cost per family of four: $17/DR or $21/NDR. Additional charges for each family member after the 4th person. If you have the water features and slide at BPRC, the cost is $27/DR or $34/NDR. Family must adhere to social distancing guidelines from other swimmers in the pool. At BPRC, there will be two families per time slot and there could be lap swimmers in the lap lanes. Families can reserve and pay for both spots per family swim time slot if they prefer.  At WRC, there will be one family per time slot and there could be lap swimmers in the lap lanes.
