Pool Hours

The Dallas Aquatic Center is open daily. Given the shared usage of our several pools within the facility, swim times and access vary by pool hourly and daily. During the school year we are closed during the week from 1:00 pm to 4:30 pm except on Friday when we reopen at 3:00 pm for recreation swim.

Pool hours change quarterly. Occasionally, unforeseen circumstances may interrupt regularly scheduled activities. Whenever possible, we try to provide advance notice of schedule changes but cannot guarantee it.

What is an Adult Swim?



Adult swim is anytime there isn't a recreational swim going. This could be in the morning as well as the afternoon. During this time, adults are able to exercise, swim laps, or even relax in the spa. There are also other activities that may be occurring such as; swimming lessons, swim team, water aerobics or other activities.
If you wish to bring an individual who is under the age of 18 years old to an adult swim, they must be within arms reach of the adult at all times. There is a maximum of 2 youth to 1 adult and the youth may enter the pools at 11:00 am.

What is a Recreational Swim?



Recreational swim times are designated portions of the day where the whole family can enjoy. This is when the fountain, slide, and even the diving board are open to the public. The times that are scheduled for recreational swims are typically in the evening but in the summer there are plenty of afternoon times.

*Unfortunately the rope swing is indefinitely out of order
