Aquatics

Cactus, Eldorado and McDowell Mountain Ranch are open for Lap Swim. The fitness centers will remain closed at this time. The closure is related to the on-going COVID-19 public health crisis. The guidelines to re-open the fitness centers would greatly limit the number of people able to workout in addition to the other requirements, including staffing, that are required. 

Fall afternoon Swim lessons are available at CactusEldorado and McDowell Mountain Ranch Pools beginning September 9, 2020.

The city continues to serve the public throughout situations like the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and is closely tracking the situation to ensure that city staff and the public are protected.

Mission

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.  

The Aquatic Centers conduct lifeguard and other safety drills. These drills are meant to simulate actual emergency situations and may occur during operating times. A red wrist band will be worn by the "person in distress" during these simulated drills. If you witness any such simulated emergency, please remain calm and follow the directions of the staff.
