The Family Pass goes on sale 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
- Only the MMR Family Pass can be used at all four pools. Passes purchased for Eldorado, Cactus and Chaparral may be used at any of the three pools. See below for pricing.
- 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.

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.
