Aquatic Programs

The Parks & Recreation Department operates aquatics facilities at the Atlantic Recreation Center (heated main pool and open year-round) and Martin Luther King, Jr. Recreation Center (heated main pool open year-round for aquatics programs, but public swim is only available during the summer months).  Each facility has a main pool, suitable for a variety of aquatics programming, and a kiddie pool with multiple water features.

Daily admission: $3 for City residents with City Resident Verification cards, $5 for Non-City residents
1-month and 4-month Pool passes are available, as well as Pool/Fitness Combo passes (use of Atlantic Pool and Atlantic Fitness Room).

Scuba diving certification classes, lifeguard and swimming instructor certification classes, and more may be offered throughout the year at either of our aquatics facilities. Homeschool Swim Clinics are offered throughout the school year (August - May), and group swimming lessons (summer) and private lessons (year-round, based upon instructor availability).  Information available at the Atlantic Recreation Center 2500 Atlantic Ave.
