Pool Schedule

September Hours have been adjusted and the pool will close for the season on September 20, 2020

Please note: the pool empties out facility after each swim session for cleaning and disinfecting. Guests must bring their own masks and will not be allowed in with out a mask. Masks must be worn at all times while outside of the pool.

GIAC is thrilled by the outpouring of financial support that has helped to bring back pool staff and make additional necessary hires to provide services to the community.
Please remember that we are still in the midst of a pandemic, and responsible behavior from community members is essential.
The public swim time schedule is broken down into blocks of time where guests will check-in until the capacity is reached. Please note, capacity has been decreased to allow for appropriate physical distancing in and out of the pool. At the end of each swim session time, guests will exit the facility and the facility will temporarily close for a short time for thorough cleaning and disinfecting and then the next swim session guests will be admitted. Admittance is on a first come basis.
