New Pool Hours at Aquatic Center

Aquatics (4)

Every year the Apache Junction Parks and Recreation aquatic staff meets to decide how to best program Superstition Shadows Aquatic Center so it maximizes pool usage and provides the community the best opportunity to take part in the Learn to Swim program. To assist with the heavy volume of evening swim lesson participants, we’ve adjusted our open swim time and added a third swim lesson timeframe. Our new Open Swim hours will be 11:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. daily through July 22. The pool opens Saturday, May 25, for the season.

Due to the Apache Junction Unified School District schedule, we have altered some summer Open Swim hours at the pool. While the kids are in school, during the weeks of July 23-26 and July 29-Aug. 2, the pool will be open from 3-5:30 p.m. Open Swim will be free of charge on these days only. (Please note, the fifth session of swim lessons will not be affected by these changes).

We’ve extended our summer season due to the early start date for AJUSD. Starting Aug. 3, we’ll be open on weekends through Aug. 18. Weekend Open Swim hours will stay the same,11:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m.; regular daily fees apply.

Don’t wait until summer starts, purchase your summer pool passes now! Pool pass discounts will be available April 1 through May 27. Purchase pool passes at the Multi-Generational Center or at the pool opening weekend.


Family Pass - $83 (regular $110);

Adult Pass - $53 (regular $73);

Youth Pass - $38 (regular $50)

Information on all aquatic and Parks programs can be found in the Summer edition of the Citizen brochure at or pick one up at the Multi-Generational Center located at 1035 N. Idaho Road, Apache Junction. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for up-to-date information.
