Some pool rules:
- Season passes are not transferable.
- Children under 10 must be accompanied by an adult.
- The pool will not open if the temperature at opening time is below 68 degrees. Pool management decides whether to close the pool if there is bad weather or the temperature falls below 68 degrees. Refunds and rain checks will not be given if the pool closes because of weather.
- Food, drinks and coolers are not allowed in the pool area with a permit, which is $5 per family. They can be checked for free at the front desk and then be taken outside to the park for eating.
