Additional Water Walking & Lap Swim Hours:


Water Walking / Lap Swim is a great option for summer fitness! The Lazy River is 556 linear feet where the water’s buoyancy and resistance make water walking ideal, especially for people with arthritis, back, knee or ankle pain. There are both steps and an easy entrance ramp in and out of the water. Youth age 10 and older may walk with an adult. All who enter the facility during this time must water walk or swim laps. Season passes & 15-pass scan cards are accepted.
