Serious Medical Conditions: Those with serious medical conditions should be accompanied by an individual
knowledgeable of their condition and responsible for their direct supervision.

What to wear? Proper bathing attire means bathing attire only. Sorry, no street clothes, shoes or undergarments. No
bare feet outside of the pool deck or changerooms. All children not toilet trained must wear an article of clothing
(with elastic legs) and/or a swim diaper that will keep fecal matter contained in the event of a fouling. These can be
purchased at our customer service desk for $2.00. No disposable diapers are permitted. We ask that people please
tie back long hair while swimming.

Pool Foulings: In the event of a pool fouling, we must close the pool to properly sanitize the water. Unfortunately
these events are unpredictable and the pool can be closed anywhere from 1 hour to 13 hours. Health Department Regulations: These regulations are posted on the entrance to the pool deck and on the pool deck and must be followed. Showers are mandatory prior to entry and re-entry to the pool by all bathers.

Lane Swimming Etiquette: Swim in an empty lane if there is one available and if you need to share a lane, let the
swimmer/swimmers already in the lane know you’re getting in by standing on the edge of the pool or by dangling your
foot in the pool.
• Choose a lane with swimmers who are swimming at your pace and always swim in a counter-clockwise circle.
• To pass someone, tap their feet and when it is safe to do so, swim past them. Do not pass if there is the
possibility of meeting a swimmer travelling in the opposite direction.
• Do not speed up if someone tries to pass you and do not swim directly behind the swimmer ahead of you, as this
may result in injuries.
• Do not use another swimmer’s equipment unless they give you permission to do so.
• Swim using strokes that are appropriate for the number of swimmers in your lane. (For example, do not use fly if
there are other people in your lane.)
• Be polite. Explain lane swimming etiquette to other swimmers in a courteous manner and if you have any questions, please feel free to ask a lifeguard.
