To ensure everyone enjoys equal access to HPAC, patrons must register and pay in advance online for each session, and no walk-ins will be allowed. To reserve your spot, visit https://bit.ly/HoldingParkAquaticCenter.
Patrons may register and pay for a particular swim session up to 10 days but no less than two hours in advance. When a session is full, registration for that session is closed. Again, the window to register for a particular session closes two hours before the session begins.
Open swim times are scheduled in three-hour blocks, with one hour in between to allow staff to clean and sanitize the facility, including deck chairs, door handles, hand rails and other high-touch areas. A maximum of 160 patrons will be allowed inside the facility during each session.
Swim lesson registration will begin Monday, May 31, at 8 a.m. Online registration will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis until all slots are filled. For more information, visit http://bit.ly/wfswimlessons.
