Lap/Spa/Walk

Water provides the opportunity to exercise in numerous ways that are not available in typical land based activities. Water lends itself to a well-balanced workout that improves all major components of physical fitness, aerobic training, muscular strength and endurance, flexibility and body composition. Patrons 16 years of age and older can enjoy the Hydro Therapy Pool. (Lap/water walking is not available during swim lessons.) Check the pool schedule for lap/spa/walk hours.
