This is for private, after-hours rentals only; pool pavilion and funbrella rentals will continue to follow agency policies for rental of those amenities system-wide. Each pool rental requires a minimum of 14 calendar days advance scheduling to allow for adequate staff scheduling.   The estimated rental fee must be paid in full no less than 7 days prior to the event date; otherwise, the rental will be cancelled.  The final fee must be paid in full by the end of the rental event. All regular pool rules and municipal ordinances apply during group rental periods.

The pools are available to rent during the summer season from 8-10 PM on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings.
Lap Lane Rentals are available between 6:30 AM and 10 PM during the regular operating season, when there is no previously scheduled use of the lap sections.
