Q. How can I find out when the water features will be on at the indoor leisure pool at the recreation center?
A. Patrons can request water features to be turned on while visiting the recreation center indoor pool. Our general schedule is listed in the program guide under the aquatics schedule “Indoor Water Slide Hours.” Typically, the water slide and spray features function at the same time, unless spray features are specifically requested and do not conflict with another use, such as water aerobics.
