Summer Family Pass

The Summer Family Pass allows all families unlimited public swim and fitness center visits from Memorial Day through Labor Day. A family of four that visits a city pool an average of two times a week receives a substantial savings over the drop-in price when they purchase a Family Pass for the season. The savings increase the more frequently you attend. Family Passes include unlimited public swim, lap swim and fitness center visits.

How the Pass Works

  • Your family will be issued a single Summer Family Pass card.
  • Additional/replacement cards may be purchased for $5 each.
  • The pass is sold to the immediate family** of the main contact on the account.
  • No more than 12 people can be on any single pass.
  • Any pass over four family members are charged an additional member fee.

**Main contact's parents, spouse, spouse's parents, siblings, children, step-children, and adopted children if all are residing at the same address.
