    Recreation Swim

    POP-UP SWIMS ARE HERE!!!   During the school year we will be offering Pop-Up Swims.  These swims will be planned (about) once a month and will be advertised on our instagram page (@barlowpool), website and through the mailing list.  Participants will be on a first come-first served basis until we reach maximum capacity.  Since some people didn't get to use their FREE passes for summer lessons due to our closure, these will be honored during all of our Pop-Up Swims.  We will also still be accepting punch cards as those never expire.  You may also still purchase punch cards any time of year.  Stay tuned for our next Pop-Up Swim!

    Cost $5.00 per person     Cash or check only. We do not have a card reader.

    Discount Punch Cards for Recreation Swim (includes Pop-Up swims):

    $45 for 10 Swims     $85 for 20 Swims     $120 for 30 Swims


    Please note the following pool policies:

    • Children 8 years old or younger MUST be accompanied by an adult in the water at all times. 
    • Non-swimmers or those wearing lifejackets, an adult must be in the water within arms reach at all times. 
    • Barlow Pool does not provide lifejackets. 
    • All children must be toilet trained in order to swim.
    • Lifeguards commonly ask people to do a short swim test prior to going into deep water.  If the participant cannot complete the swim test to the level that the lifeguard feels is successful, then they will be asked to stay in the shallow area.  We will always err on the side of safety.
    • We do not take credit cards, debit cards, apple pay or venmo.  We ONLY accept cash or check.
    • Food is not allowed on deck.
    • Please keep street shoes off pool deck.
    • Glass containers are not allowed in pool faciltiy.
    • No long breath holding or prolonged repetitive breath holding, it's for your own safety!
