Important Aquatic Center Safety Guidelines

To assist in ensuring a safe environment is maintained in all of our pools, we have updated our safety policy in the Aquatic Center for 2020. We will be implementing a new three-color wristband procedure. Wristbands identify swimmers capability, age, and supervision requirements to ensure all children are adequately supervised and accompanied. Swim tests may be required. We appreciate your cooperation and support.

  • Children 11 years of age and younger will be given an identifying wristband upon entry to the Grove Aquatic Center. 
  • Yellow wristband swimmers 42 inches or taller may use the water slides.

US Coast Guard-approved floatation devices are allowed in pool area. We have a few available to borrow. • All users of life jackets must be within an arm’s reach of an adult.

Locker Rooms and Showers will be available with limited locker use to promote social distancing; however, air dryers and swimsuit spin dryers are not available for use. A family locker room is available for those with young children.

Sauna use is for those ages 16 and older and all users of the sauna must remain clothed (currently closed). 

Hot tub use is for ages 16 and older.
