MWR’s C-Side Recreation Center has a five lane, 25 yard outdoor pool with a picnic pavilion area. The pool can be used for lap swim, exercise classes or daily leisure usage for families. For the safety of our guests, we provide certified lifeguards on staff at all times. There are also chairs and tables for use. Lounge chairs are not permitted.
