Open Recreation Swim

Our Open Recreation Swim is endless aquatic fun for the whole family!

With designated times throughout the week, our Open Recreation Swim offers a safe and welcoming environment for swimmers of all ages and skill levels. 

Open Recreation Swim Features

  • Recreation lap pool - This body of water includes three, 20-yard lap lanes and ample space for recreational play.
  • Zero-depth entry area - Designed for toddlers and those with physical limitations.
  • Shallow-water area – Designed for preschool and beginner swimmers.
  • Hot tub – Designed to accommodate the special needs of our guests, water temperature is 102 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Lazy river – Designed in a figure 8 shape to allow guests to glide through the water on tubes. In addition, water fit classes may also take place in the river section of the facility.
  • Spray n' play area – Designed to provide a fun, interactive aquatic wonderland for young swimmers.
  • Splashtacular – This enclosed waterslide provides a fun, corkscrew ride starting inside the center, spiraling out of the building and back in, ending in the recreation pool. OurSplashtacular is 151-feet long and 20-feet high. Guests must be at least 48-inches tall and pass a swim test to slide.

NOTE: In lieu of the Splashtacular water slide being closed for repairs at this time, we have the Fire Blaster, an 18-foot, dual-lane, inflatable slide for guests of all ages to enjoy.

Open Recreation Swim Admission


  • Reserve your spot online: Online registration is available and pre-registered guests are guaranteed entry to the open swim even once the swim is sold out.
  • Get here early: Welcome Center staff will begin in-person, drop-in sales about 30 minutes prior to the swim session start time.
  • Frequent guest passes: We offer 10-Visit Punch Passes, 3-Month and Annual Passes, in addition to a Drop-In rate if you want to enjoy the pool for only one Recreation Swim. 
  • Add the FlowRider: The FlowRider is not included in the price of admission to Open Recreation Swim but may be purchased as an add-on. A waiver must be signed. To save time, this can be filled out ahead of time online.
  • Spectators and supervision: Spectators will not be charged for admission to Open Recreation Swim. However, the following child supervision requirements apply:
    • Guests ages 6 and under must be accompanied into the pool by a supervising guest (14+) in the building at all times.
    • Guests 12 and under must be supervised by a guest (14+) in the building at all times.
    • One supervising guest may monitor no more than three children (ages 6 and under) in the water.
    • Supervising guests may observe from the lobby or the pool deck, however, for safety reason, will be required to sit on the provided benches/bleachers at all times. This allows us to maintain safety for our swimmers and staff, while recognizing our guests' needs to be closer to those they are observing.

Open Recreation Swim is extremely popular and swim times are limited to 200 participants. When all tickets are distributed, swims have reached maximum capacity as established by the Washington Health Department and cannot admit anymore swimmers.  

Unforeseen Sanitation Closures

On occasion, circumstances arise in which the Recreation Pool waters need to be exited and the area cleared for a sanitation process. This process takes 30 minutes and the water is tested before re-entry of the pool is allowed.
