Along with the new Apache Junction School District schedule come changes to the open swim hours at the pool.

While the kids are in school, July 24-27 and July 30-Aug. 3, the pool has modified hours and will be open from 3-6 p.m.

Open swim will be FREE of charge on these days only. (Please note, 5th session of swim lessons will not be affected by these changes.)

Due to school starting earlier, we’ve extended our summer season. Starting Aug. 4th, we’ll be open on weekends through Aug. 19th. Weekend open swim hours will stay the same,12-6 p.m., regular daily fees apply.

We’ve also added a Movie Night at the pool to close out the summer. Friday, Aug. 17th, enjoy a refreshing swim in the pool with the family at 6:30 p.m., then relax on your beach blanket or lawn chair for Dr. Seuss’s “The Lorax” at 7:30 p.m. Fee is $2 per person at the door. Bring some extra money for the Kona-Ice Truck and enjoy a snow cone or ice cream treat during the movie.
