Medgar Evers Pool Schedule

Closure Notice

Updated 5/5/22: Due to the ongoing nature of unforeseen electrical and mechanical issues, we regret that the pool will remain closed until mid-June so that repairs can be completed. We are aware how frustrating this is to our community, especially given how recent events have impacted our ability to provide service in recent years. We apologize for the inconvenience. We anticipate being able to offer Swim Lessons for Summer. Registration for Summer Lessons opens May 25.

Program Descriptions

Lap Swim is a continuous lap swim for swimmers of all ages; we divide the lanes according to speed levels.  

Adult and Senior Swim Adult and Senior Swim is time set aside for recreational swimming for adults 18 or older. We set aside one part of the pool for lap swimming and leave the rest of the pool available for less structured swimming or water fitness activities.

Deep & Shallow Water Fitness is a combined deep & shallow-water fitness class using resistance equipment that not only burns calories, but strengthens muscles while shaping and toning the entire body. This 45-minute class is great for hips, thighs, arms, and abdominals.  

Shallow Water Fitness Set to energizing music, this is a heart-pounding, muscle toning workout that is easy on your joints but still has all the benefits of a total body, aerobic workout. Participants can work at their own pace. Active class time is 45 minutes.

Public Swim: These sessions are for families and children to come and play in the water. Children under 4 feet tall and under 6 years old will be required to have a parent stay within arm's reach of them at all times in the pool.  Only 2 younger children per parent during the swim.  A parent may bring a group of older children up to ten per adult making sure they are supervising the group.  This swim time may be shared with another program going on at the same time.  Pool toys and equipment may be used at the lifeguard's discretion. Swim tests required to enter deep end for youth under 18 and life jackets available upon request.
