Scottsdale Aquatics Vision: "Everyone Learns to Swim".

Mission: Provide the highest quality of aquatic instructional and recreation services to Scottsdale residents and visitors in order to help achieve that vision.

Our facilities provide affordable, safe, diverse activities to meet community needs, with a focus on drowning prevention and water safety awareness.

The Aquatic Maintenance staff do everything they can to keep the pools clear and clean. You can protect yourself and others from Recreational Water Illness by reviewing recommendations by the CDC for healthy swimming.  

Aquatic Centers

Chaparral Pool Re-plaster project:

Beginning 3-27-17 through 5-8-17 Chaparral Pool will be resurfaced.

Our intention is to have work done during weekday, daylight hours & have vehicles enter from the north side, off Jackrabbit Road. The first few weeks will be a noisier part of the project.

If you have any questions, please email Parksandrec@scottsdaleaz.gov or call 480-312-2771.

Summer Family Pass

 The Pre-Season Sale for the Family Pass begins April 1, and 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.
  • 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.
