Recreation Swim

Recreation Swim ends on 8/6/23. We will see you back for the 2024 season!

The Campbell Community Pool features one 20-yard by 25-yard outdoor pool divided into shallow and deep ends for all swimmers to enjoy. Locker Rooms and showers are available for use, but please bring your own lock if you are interested in securing your items. On deck, we have lounge chairs, pool chairs, tables, and more. Check in with our front desk at the gate to learn more!

Swimmers newborn to age 7 must also have an adult (18+ yrs) within arm's reach in the pool at all times if they have not passed the swim test twice. Swimmers newborn to age 7 that have passed the swim test twice, do not need to have an adult (18+ yrs) in the pool with them, but still be present in the facility. Any swimmers between 8-12 yrs are welcome to swim in the shallow end without an adult, but need to pass the swim test to swim in the deep end. All swimmers 13+ yrs are welcome to be in the facility by themselves, but will need to pass the swim test to swim in the deep end. Please remember that even if your children have the unlimited swim pass, if they are under 12 they will need a parent or grownup in the facility who will also need to pay $2.50 per swim.

Only US Coast Guard Approved Life Jackets are allowed in the pool.

An aquatics staff member will check each jacket when you arrive at the pool. Limited lifejackets are also available to borrow while swimming.
