A recreation pool features a zero-depth entry, geysers, and whirling water, as well as a shipwrecked boat for sliding fun, tipping toucans for water showers, and a 25-foot water slide with a separate plunge pool.

Serious fitness swimmers will make a splash in our eight-lane, 25-yard competition pool, ranging in depth from five feet to 12 feet. Take a plunge off our two one-meter diving boards or a three-meter board.

Specialized programming will be available in a nearby therapy pool. The pool will be used for the Sherman Hospital Wellness Center, rehabilitation therapy, special recreation programming, senior water exercise, and warm-up prior to swim competitions.
