2021 Aquatics Season

Adult Pre-Season Lap Swim at Witter: May 10 - June 18, Monday – Friday, 11:00 am – 2:30 pm

Regular Aquatics Season (lap swim, swim lessons, swim team): June 21 – August 27

Open Swim: July 5 – August 27, Monday - Saturday

IMPORTANT NOTICE

Following all state-mandated guidelines, the Aquatics season will look different than we are all accustomed to, however, we are excited to open pools this summer with equitable access as our priority.

The biggest changes this year: free open swim will be in 1-hour block sessions, and registration will be required. Having 1-hour sessions will ensure we can rotate visitors through and give everyone a chance to swim. Reservations will help us manage occupancy. Phases 2 and 3 mean different occupancy levels.

One-Hour Open Swim Sessions

Our occupancies are reduced this year under COVID guidelines. To help ensure everyone gets a chance to enjoy free open swimming, we’re operating in 1-hour sessions. Reservations are required in advance, details below. These changes are mandated by the state.

Reservations Required

Due to COVID-19, Spokane Parks & Recreation aquatic centers are operating with new safety restrictions. To promote distancing and manage occupancy, advanced reservations are now required under state guidelines. Reservations will be available on Mondays for the following week (ex: reservations open July 5 for the week of July 12).

Reservation Process
  • Please make reservations online at SpokaneRec.org under the Aquatics tab. Reservations can also be made over the phone at 509-755-2489 during regular business hours. Please note, voicemail and email reservation requests will not be accepted.
  • A free SplashPass account is required to make a reservation. If you had a SplashPass in the 2019 season, you do not need to register for a new one in 2021. To sign up for a free SplashPass, please visit our website, or call 509.755.2489.
  • Each individual must be registered (including babies/infants), so we can monitor capacity numbers as required by the state. Anyone not registered will not be admitted into the pool area, whether swimming or not.
  • You will be emailed a receipt for your swim reservation, please check it to ensure every person is listed.
  • Reservations can be made for household members only.
During Your Visit
  • Please line up no more than 15 minutes before your reservation.
  • Please wear a mask at all times, except when in the pool.
  • One member of the party (over age 18) will be asked to answer health screening questions for the entire group. If anyone doesn't pass, the entire party won't be allowed to enter.
  • Bring only a few necessities into the pool area for your one-hour session and arrive in swim attire to maximize your time in the pool. No swim equipment (arm floats, etc.) will be provided, please bring your own swim equipment.
