Wading Pool Policy
We welcome everybody to play in our wading pool as long as they are children under age 7 and accompanied by a parent or sitter over the age of 14. Parents or sitters can wear street clothes in the wading pool without paying an admission fee. Anybody in a swimming suit will pay an admission fee. Swim diaper or tight fitting rubber pants are required for those not toilet trained.
Season Pass Policy
Pass holders will be checked daily. Only immediate family members may be on a Family Pass. Sitters or guests will pay the daily rate or may take advantage of the discount punch card.
Plain Clothes Policy
Parents are welcome in plain clothes to supervise children in the wading pool. Plain clothes and street shoes are not allowed on the main pool deck.
State Health Department Recommendation
We are now required to have procedures in the event of a fecal accident. As a result, any "accident" will require us to be closed for a minimum of two hours. Swim diapers or tight fitting rubber pants are now required for those children not toilet trained. Needless to say, showers will be enforced and patrons can safeguard themselves by not drinking the pool water. Swim diapers will be available for purchase at the pool.
