The lap pool and leisure pool are also open by reservation only. Lap lanes are limited to two people per lane. Restrooms and showers are open, and lockers are available on a limited basis.

    In addition, the Rec Center Leisure Pool is also open by reservation. Reservations may be made 48 hours in advance.

    Please keep in mind:
    • The sauna is NOT available
    • Hot tub space is extremely limited - three people per rotation. If tub capacity is reached, participants must rotate out at the end of one bubble cycle
    • Limited lockers are available. Showers are also available for swimmers to rinse off
    • Please arrive with your swimsuit on, and be prepared to leave the facility in your swimsuit
    • Slides are available starting at 9 a.m.
    A few additional amenities will also be opening at the Recreation Center in the first week of October. The racquetball courts will be available for singles only play starting Oct. 1; challenge play and Wallyball will not be allowed. Additionally, the basketball courts will open for family shoot around and limited pickup games. All courts will be available by reservation only. Timeslots are available online.

    Miller Activity Complex


    The MAC has been generally closed since March. The facility has hosted school break camps and other special programs; however, it has not been available for public use. Now, several amenities will reopen later this week, and reservations will be available starting Tuesday, Sept. 29.

    Reservations will be available for the trampolines, Functional Fitness area, pool and indoor fields. However, the play structure and toddler area will remain closed. Additionally, the furniture in the lobby area has been removed to prevent congregating. Reservations may be made up to 48 hours in advance at CRgov.com/Registration.

    Staff is working to follow all State and local health department guidelines. With that in mind, masks will be required throughout the facility, except while in the pool. Lockers and showers will be available on a limited basis. And, cleaning protocols will be followed throughout the day and between reservation timeslots. It’s also important to note that walk-ins will not be allowed. And, children under 14 years old must be accompanied by an adult while in the facility.

    Outdoor pools and splash pads


    Burgess and Butterfield Crossing pools are currently open. Reservations are available online 48-hours in advance.

    Make a reservation

    Splash pads at Philip S. Miller and Festival parks are also open. Reservations are not required. Hours for both sites are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.

    More information


    Please remember to practice social distancing and maintain a distance of at least 6 feet. Additionally, local health officials recommend wearing a face covering while in public. The intent remains to limit interactions to only those within your own household. Good hygiene - like not touching your face, and washing your hands well, and often - also remains important.
