The pool, boasting an impressive assortment of activities, from its lazy river to water jungle gym, has been a favorite summertime destination for Miami Valley residents since its creation in 2012.

To keep its patrons safe, the popular public pool will be putting familiar procedures in place, like frequent cleaning efforts, new capacity rules and adjustments to seating for increased social distancing. Capacity will be posted at the pool and enforced. Anyone with a fever or symptoms will not be allowed to enter.
