Now that the rain has cleared out of our area, and summer has returned with hot and sunny weather, many are ready hit the pools.

Please note that Schifferdecker Aquatic Center will be closed this weekend, starting today, July 10 through Sunday, July 12 due to the USA Swim Meet being held at this facility.

Both Cunningham and Ewert Aquatic Centers will be open during regular hours, 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Both offer various amenities for children of all ages and their families, including a zero depth entry into the main pool area; an in-pool shaded rest area; and interactive spray features. Plus each has various amenities that draw kids of all ages into the water. Younger children will enjoy play areas in the water, and more experienced swimmers can jump, dive and slide their way into the water. For those enjoy the sunshine or prefer to stay dry, expanded deck areas with sunbathing opportunities plus several shaded canopy areas with deck furniture are featured at each location.

Cunningham Aquatic Center is located at 24th and Maiden Lane Streets. Admission is $3 for children, $4 for adults 16 years of age and older, and children age 2 and under are admitted free of charge.
