On top of being a great deal, pool pass holders also get all kinds of awesome exclusives like early access to Sholem Aquatic Center every day for the first 30 minutes of public swim hours, private invite to our free after-hours pool pass party, free access to lap swim, Walk the River, and Tiny Tots Splash Time! Now that’s what we call summer lovin’! Click here to purchase your pass.
*Try before you buy!* If you like what you experience when you visit, before you leave present your receipt to the ticket office and we will credit you in the amount of the daily admission fees for anyone on your receipt who is being added to your new season pass that day!
