Pools are back open and we are required to shower with soap and warm water before entering the water. This includes washing your hair, but another option is to wear your swim cap after your shower.

We absolutely miss teaching swim lessons and we want to thank you for your patience while we wait together. Aquatics is searching all the best practices to see what we can do and what is recommended. Currently, the American Red Cross still wants social distancing between the instructor and the student. Please, know that we are asking what we can do and trying to present the best options. Once we know more and can offer some programming, we will post it here.

Area 2 has opened the recreation side. Please remember to social distance.

Here are some ideas for helping little ones with their water skills in your bathtub. I have my daughter and her two daughters helping us with getting wet, bubbles and getting ready for floating. If you don't mind the mess, kicks are also great in the tub. I prefer the kicks in the little pool in the yard though. Hope this helps!

Aquatics cannot wait to get back to the pool!

Wallace Creek Indoor Pool is temporarily closed due to a power outage. We will reopen as soon as possible. Thank you for your understanding.

I went swimming at Terrawa Terrace Pool on Saturday 13 June and had a great time. The water felt good.
