Recreation Swim Times

Recreation Swim is a great time to be at the Dallas Aquatic Center! All pools, the slide, the diving board, the splash fountain, and the river are open. We also keep one lane of the lap pool open and the wade pool is open. This is the ideal time for youth and families to come and enjoy our fantastic facility and all it has to offer.

Recreation Swim is a scheduled open swim time available during specific scheduled hours.

Slide Rules

We have a minimum height requirement of 48" to ride the water slide. If a swimmer is under 48", they may pass a swim test to use the slide. Sorry, no double-riding, catching someone at the bottom of the slide, or persons over 250 pounds.

Rope Swing is indefinitely out of order. We apologize for the inconvenience. 

Please see all Pool Rules for other rules that apply during Recreation Swim.

Please note that sometimes our Special Events or pool closures may interrupt the regularly posted schedules, or we may add a No-School recreation swim time when school is out, so please check the website frequently. We do our best to make sure all information is up to date and correct, but unforeseen circumstances may interrupt regularly scheduled activities. Please watch the website for updates, or call the staff at 503.623.9715 if you have questions.
