Open swims are for all ages. Non-swimmers and children under 48 inches tall must be supervised in the water by an adult swimmer. During Family Swims, children under 18 years old must be accompanied in the water by a parent or guardian. Please remember that safety is a team effort. Lifeguards and parents share the responsibility to ensure that children have a safe and fun swimming experience.

*Teens are always welcome during Open Swim times. However, Teen Force passes (free entry for youth ages 10-20 at five PP&R community centers) are only valid during designated times.
