Facility Cleaning

The Parks and Recreation team will be diligent in protecting patrons of the Midco® Aquatic Center from the spread of COVID-19. Individuals considered vulnerable to adverse health outcomes due to COVID-19 are encouraged to take extra precautions if choosing to use the Aquatic Center. All patrons of the center will be required to sign a waiver including parents signing on behalf of their minor children.

Changes to Amenities

Patrons are encouraged to arrive and depart in swimwear. Family changing rooms will be available, but locker rooms will remain closed.

Meeting rooms, drinking fountains, concessions, and suit dryers will not be available at this time. Swimmers are encouraged to bring bottled water in a reusable water bottle.

Due to the limited capacity, reservations will be accepted in limited intervals to the same party to allow as many different parties the opportunity to make a reservation. Reservations accepted starting at 2 p.m. on Friday, June 5. To schedule a reservation, visit midcoaquaticcenter.org.
