Summer Season Begins Soon

Aquatics (4)

May is National Water Safety Month and Superstition Shadows Aquatic Center is getting ready to open for the 2018 season. Please remember when purchasing lifejackets and flotation devices for your kids that you look for the US Coast Guard Approved statement on the lifejacket. To help keep your family safe in and around the water this summer, Parks and Recreation is offering swim lessons for ages 6 months and up. Swim lessons are offered in the mornings and evenings and are split into two-week sessions with five different sessions being offered during the season. For those looking for a way to exercise at the pool, register for Water Aerobics, Water Tone & Sculpt class or adult lap swim. Besides these great classes, each month hosts a special event.

Fit Families Sweat & Splash is a free event for families to enjoy some fun ways to get fit at the pool. The event is Friday, May 25 from 6:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m. Children 7 and under must be within arm’s reach of an adult at all times. Pool passes will also be available for purchase at the pool during the Fit Family event. Quite Frankly Delicious food cart will have food and beverages for purchase in the parking lot from 5:30-8:30 p.m. – come early and grab a bite to eat before the event.

Itty Bitty Beach Party will be held Friday, June 15 from 6:30 p.m.-8 p.m. Admission to this event is $3 and is open to kids aged 6 and under. There will be swimming, games, and prizes! All children 7 and under must be within arm’s reach of an adult at all times. The Healthy Mason Jar food truck will be at the pool until 8 p.m.

Teen Glow Night is on Friday, July 13 from 7-9 p.m. Admission is $5 and all teens between the ages of 13-18 years old are welcome. Come and participate in a variety of glow-in-the-dark activities including: volleyball, open swim, music, games, and competitions! Free pizza and drinks with price of admission.

New to the pool this summer are Food Trucks! There will be a variety of food truck vendors throughout the summer in the parking lot of Superstition Shadows Aquatic Center. The concession stand will no longer be selling snacks at the pool; however, there will be a beverage vending machine with cold water, soda and other drinks. The food truck calendar is posted on our website and will be posted at the pool.

We’ve made some changes to the pool schedule this summer. The pool opens to the public on May 26 with open swim from noon-6 p.m. The fee is $1.50 for youth and $2.50 for adults.
