Back-to-School Pool Party

Let the Aquatics Staff send you back to school in style! We will be hosting our first Back-to-School pool parties in 2017. Join us for all-day games, music and fun at the pool! There will be special concessions for sale and back-to-school giveaways all day at the pool, from backpacks to notebooks and more.
