Visit this hidden gem in the southeast side of the City. The water temperature in the two indoor pools at "King Pool" are maintained at 80 degrees. The children's wading pool is merely 6- to 18-inches deep so it's a great place for your new swimmer to practice.
During the school year, children's swim lessons are offered on Saturday mornings. Kids 48 inches or taller can join the swim team. Team practice times are Tuesdays through Fridays from 4:30pm–6:30pm. In the summer, you can sign up for two weeks of half-hour lessons that take place five days a week. All classes are $1 in addition to the pool admission fee.

"This is a beautiful, awesome new pool. A great addition to the City."
– Connie, mother of two
"We had my daughter's 11-year-old birthday party here. The kids swam and then we went to the party room and then the kids went outside to play while I cleaned up. It was easy parking and a great pool with a small tots area too." – Chris, mother of two
