The Kiwanis Pool is open and we can't wait to welcome you back!

Gov. Ducey issued an Executive Order on June 29 that provided new guidelines for city-operated pools, gyms and events. As a result, the following changes are in effect:
  • Open swim and lap swim will continue with strict physical distancing, face covering and cleaning protocols in place. Groups of 10 or more will not be allowed to congregate in or out of pools. 

 Visit for the latest information. 

Here's what to expect: 

  • There will be no waves for the rest of 2020 - enjoy the calm waters.  
  • Face coverings are required at all times, except when you're in the water.
  • Temperature checks are required upon entry and physical distancing must be in place inside and outside the pool. 
  • Maximum pool capacity will be 40 people. 
  • Wrist bands can be purchased up to 30 minutes before drop-in swim sessions. These will be sold on a first come, first served basis. 
  • Drop-in groups will be split into small groups and guided into the pool area separately to allow for physical distancing while entering the pool areas.
  • It is highly encouraged to come ready to swim to maximize your time in the pool.
