Lap Swim + Water Fitness + Deep Water Walking

Our Cold West Pool is now closed until mid-late October to allow for our HVAC system to be replaced. We originally planned for a September 6 reopening, but the shipping of the HVAC system that needs to be replaced is taking longer than expected. Until we have a firm grasp on the exact date that our cold pool will be allowed to reopen, we will be releasing month-by-month calendars for the Rec Warm Pool and Zeeland West Natatorium. All updated pool schedules are highlighted below. Thank you for your patience!
