Persons using the waterslide must be at least 42 inches tall. Double sliding is not allowed. Metal objects of any kind are not allowed on the waterslide.

Family Pool Passes

Family pool passes are available for purchase at the Parks and Recreation front desk.  The seasonal family pool pass includes up to four people.  This would consist of two parents and two minor children 17 years of age or younger or one parent with three minor children.  Minor grandchildren may also be included on a seasonal family pool pass.  It covers unlimited admission to the pool and the waterslide. This family pool pass does not cover twilight swimming, lap swimming, or adult aerobics. Check out the AQUATICS FLYER

Family pool passes do not allow guest privileges, therefore one would have to use their park pass in order to bring someone into the park. That person would be charged the daily admission rate.
