Front Desk and Shop
When you arrive at the pool, stop at the desk. Give the staff-member your name to check-in for lessons, or pay for Open Swim and receive a wristband. At the front desk you may also register for classes and pick up information. There are a few items on sale such as light refreshment, swim diapers, and diaper covers.
Conduct and Safety
Please help ensure a great experience for everyone. Before you send your young swimmers to the pool or you visit with your family, be aware that we maintain high standards for conduct with emphasis on safety. We encourage behavior that is respectful and mature, and our guards will enforce safety rules both on deck and in the pool. Read our pool rules (PDF). If a lifeguard asks you to do something, please comply quickly for everyone's safety.
The pool facility is located next to the Onetta Harris Community Center and the Menlo Park Senior Center, in a residential neighborhood with ample parking. You can find other recreational activities at the gym and track there near the pool, at the new Kelly Park.
Diaper policy: Double REQUIRED!
Help us keep the pools open by using both a disposable swim diaper and reusable diaper cover for your children who are not fully toilet-trained. If you don't have these items, you may purchase both at the front desk: disposable diaper $3, reusable diaper cover $8.
