NEW FOR 2011! Join us for Pumped Up Sundays with floatables. Come and try out these climbing floatables in the pool! Available May 22, June 19, July 17 and August 21 from 2:00pm to 4:00pm. All participants must pass a 25m swim test conducted by the guards. Younger children unable to complete the swim test are able to go on the small floatable as long as a parent is in the water within arms reach at all times.
