Our three Pools

Mission Valley & Toby Wells

Both the Pratt Pool in Mission Valley and the McGrath Pool at Toby Wells have retractable roofs that ensure the temperature inside is perfect. Water temperature ranges from 86 degrees to 90 degrees.

The outdoor Hazard pool at Mission Valley is an idea temperature for lap swim, masters swim, and certain water exercise classes like Deep Water Sweat.
