Swimming Laps or using the Therapy Pool?

Of course we all want our own private lane and sometimes we share and make new friends. We have created a chart that shows when the pools are being used for classes or groups to help you come when it is a little more quiet. Of course, if you are looking for seclusion there are no guarantees - after all it is the Pool! Download the chart.


Not used to sharing? Need to brush up on your lap swim etiquette? view our etiquette refresher guide and be ready to share a lane.

The Aquatic Center is a beautiful three-pool complex composed of an indoor six-lane competition pool, a heated therapy pool and the outdoor leisure pool. Each offers a wide variety of benefits to the community. The Blue Bell Aquatic Center offers a number of programs and swim classes throughout the year.

Looking for a unique site for a birthday party? Give us a call. The Aquatic Center is a great place to hold special events and private parties.
