What’s the difference between pass holder only swim and public swim?

During pass holder only swim, balls, toys, and floatation devices no larger than 3ft in diameter are allowed. During public swim they are not. The final difference is that safety break is only called for the last 10 minutes of every hour during public swim time and not during family swim.

Is the pool heated?

The pool is heated by the environment as well as a boiler. Staff strives to keep to water at 78o, as the optimal temperature for both lap swimmers and recreational swimmers. The temperature of the water varies based on the environmental conditions.

What happens when pool capacity is reached?

Once the posted pool capacity is reached, staff will allow one person to enter for every one person that leaves in order to maintain a safe and enjoyable environment for all of our guests. Both Rehm and Ridgeland Pools have a counting system to keep track of attendance. Rehm’s system counts both at the front entrance and the exit by the diving well to ensure proper count.

When are the slides, diving boards, climbing wall open?

The slides, diving boards and climbing wall are open during all open swim times. These attractions are not open during lap swims or swim lessons.

Attractions may close due to low attendance, poor weather, or low staffing levels.

Are non potty-trained children allowed in the water?

Non potty-trained and recently potty-trained children are allowed to swim, but must have all of the following:

  • Rubber pants
  • Swim diapers
  • A lined bathing suit

Rubber pants and swim diapers are sold at the cashier booths at the pool.  In the event of an accident in the pool, the water must be cleared for 30 minutes.  Please help to keep the pool open by ensuring all non potty-trained and recently potty-trained children are wearing all the items listed above.
