We are happy to announce that the Holmes Aquatic Center is now offering recreational swimming with all pool amenities. For more details on services, fees and guidelines, click here.
Note: Because of the Governor's Executive Order, facial covering must be worn at the facility by people 10 and older who are not swimming, who are not with immediate family members, and cannot maintain social distancing from others.
Note: Due to social distancing concerns, all aquatics programs for the 2020 pool season have been cancelled. These include: swim lessons, swim team, senior swim, Dive In movies, library story time, Doggie Splash Day, and all onsite parties.
The City's Parks & Recreation Department is responsible for maintaining and developing eight major parks to serve a wide variety of recreational and leisure needs for residents both today and in the future.
