Healthy Swim Etiquette

Shower Before Swimming
  • Please shower with soap and warm water before entering the pool. This promotes water quality.
Wear Appropriate Footwear
  • Bring clean flip flops or sandals to wear on the pool deck. Street shoes are not permitted past the viewing area.
Be Courteous to Others
  • Do not spit in the pool or spit out water.

  • Do not swim if you have open wounds.
You Can Prevent Pool Foulings

Food-Free Zone
