Recreation Swim is a great time to be at the Dallas Aquatic Center! All pools, the slide, the diving board, the splash fountain, and the river are open. We also keep one lane of the lap pool open and the wade pool is open. This is the ideal time for youth and families to come and enjoy our fantastic facility and all it has to offer.

Recreation Swim is a scheduled open swim time available during specific scheduled hours.




The following recreation swims are scheduled when area school districts do not have school. We try to offer as many additional recreation swims as possible however, we do not schedule additional recreation swims every day there is not school. As public schools are distance learning, all no school recreation swims have been postponed until further notice.
