I am in a wheelchair, or have limited walking ability and would like to access the lap pool. Is that possible?
Yes, there is a lift available that can transfer an individual from the deck to lane 1 of the lap pool. Lane 1 is also designated as the accommodation lane. There is a transfer lift for access to the leisure pool as well.

Does Salt Lake County offer Corporate Rate memberships?
The organization you work for can purchase six to 19 annual individual or family 'block' passes at a 10% discount or receive a 20% discount off the purchase of 20 or more individual or family annual passes. These passes must be purchased at the same time. Names of pass holders is helpful during the process.
There are also daily 'Block' passes that can be purchased for employees, a group or program. Passes are discounted off the regular daily pass rate. 20+ daily passes purchased = $1.00 off regular rate entrance rate. [20 passes would cost $60.00]. These passes can be used up to one year after purchase
If you would like this option please call and ask for Bess.
Why do I need to shower before entering the pool?
Showering before entering the pool helps prevent the spread of germs and illness. Here are a few helpful tips from our friends at the Salt Lake County Health Department to help protect your family and others:
- Don’t swim when you have diarrhea. You can spread germs in the water and make other people sick.
- Practice good hygiene. Shower with soap before swimming and wash your hands after using the toilet or changing diapers. Germs on your body end up in the water.
- Don’t swallow the pool water. Avoid getting water in your mouth.
- Take your kids on bathroom breaks and check diapers often. Waiting to hear “I have to go” may mean that it’s too late.
- Change diapers in a bathroom or a diaper-changing area and NOT poolside. Germs can spread in and around the pool.
- Wash your child thoroughly (especially his or her rear end) with soap and water before they enter or re-enter the pool.
