Recreational Swim

During public swim, the pool is available to all ages for general play and use of the diving board.

Cardio/Lap Swim

Lap swim is designed for cardiovascular exercise, consisting of lap swimming, water jogging or walking. Please be courteous to your fellow swimmers and circle swim when there are 3 or more people sharing a lane. Circle swimming means you swim down on the right and back on the right, staying on the right side of the lane. Lanes are divided by fast, medium and low intensity swimmers. Please ask the lifeguard on duty for assistance.


Bring your own lock to lock a locker. Please remove the lock when finished each day. If you forget a padlock, you can purchase one at the pool for $5. 

Please enter pool area through locker rooms, taking a shower prior to entering the pool. No access to the pool area is allowed through the side emergency exit. 
No food or drink in locker rooms.

Pool Closings Due To Inclement Weather

Whenever the Urbandale school system closes due to inclement weather, the pool will also close. If school starts late due to inclement weather, the pool will not open until school starts. In the event that school is not in session and the weather is questionable, the answering machine at the pool (515-278-3959) will announce if the pool is closed. Please call prior to coming. If classes are cancelled for the day due to weather conditions, an alternate make-up day will be scheduled if possible. Ask your instructor about those days and times.

Swimming Pool Refund Policy

To be eligible for a refund you must cancel at least 7 days before the first class meeting (14 days prior for pool rentals). After that, NO REFUNDS will be given unless:

  • The program or class is canceled. 
  • The participant is unable to participate because of unforeseen medical reasons. The refund will then be prorated based on the number of classes attended. If more than 50% of the program has been completed, no refund will be issued.
Refunds will not be issued for circumstances beyond our control, i.e. weather or electrical outages. Please allow three weeks for a refund to be processed. 

Office Hours

A manager is present every time the pool is open to the public.
