Superstition Shadows Aquatic Center Opens May 25

May is National Water Safety Month and Superstition Shadows Aquatic Center is getting ready to open for the 2019 season. The pool officially opens to the public on Saturday, May 25 with new open swim hours from 11:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. The fee is $1.50 for youth and $2.50 for adults. Purchase your pool passes at a discounted price now through Monday, May 27 at the Multi-Generational Center or at the pool opening weekend (passes will not be sold at the pool after May 27). Family Pass - $83 (regular $110); Adult Pass - $53 (regular $70); Youth Pass - $38 (regular $50)

Please remember when purchasing lifejackets and flotation suits/devices for your kids that you look for the U.S. Coast Guard-approved statement. Non-Coast Guard approved items will not be allowed in the facility. This includes blow up arm floaties, flotation rings, baby floats, etc. To help keep your family safe in and around the water this summer, Parks and Recreation offers swim lessons for ages 6 months and up. Swim lessons are held in the mornings and evenings and are split into two-week sessions with five different sessions being offered during the season. This year we’ve added a third timeframe to evening lessons to accommodate even more participants. Check out a Water Aerobics or Water Tone & Sculpt class or adult lap swim for another great option to exercise at the pool. Besides these great classes, each month hosts a special event.

Fit Families Sweat and Splash is a free event for families to enjoy some fun ways to get fit at the pool. The event is Friday, May 24, 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.

Itty Bitty Beach Party will be held Friday, June 21, from 6 p.m.-7:30 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.

Teen Glow Night is Friday, July 12, 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.

We look forward to having food trucks at the pool again this summer! There will be a variety of food truck vendors in the parking lot of Superstition Shadows Aquatic Center. The food truck calendar will be posted on our website as well as posted at the pool. Outside food is allowed into the facility in personal-sized lunchboxes/coolers.
