Indoor Season and Holiday Pool Hours

The indoor pool at RecPlex offers an 8-lane, 25-yard lap pool for the serious swimmer; a tot pool for little guppies looking to splash around, and plenty of open water for good, clean family fun not to mention our outstanding aquatics programs and classes.

The pool has a handicap lift, basketball hoops, ladder and step entrance, a sand volleyball court, and a comfortable observation deck with tables and chairs for relaxing or watching the little ones take swim instruction.

Because it is an indoor aquatic facility, RecPlex pool is open year round with convenient hours for lap swim or open swim time.

Like many of our facilities, RecPlex pool is available for private rentals and pool parties.

Whatever the weather, RecPlex pool is a great place to unwind, to get in your aquatic workout, splash around with the kiddies or take an aquatics class.
