Our annual pool maintenance takes place during the winter holidays, and ensures our pools stay fresh, clean, and meet safety guidelines.

Thank you for your patience while we gear up for another great year of swimming, fitness, and fun in YMCA pools across the city. Check out our open pools, and enjoy a swim at one of our convenient locations!

Lap pools are 25 yards in length, and can accommodate lap, family, and recreational swim.
Program pools are smaller, warmer, and good for recreational swim for adults and families.
