The Aspen Recreation Center is proud to host the Aspen Swim Club and Aspen High School Swim Team.  Additional information regarding the Aspen Swim Club can be found at aspenswimclub.org Swim practice is held at the Aspen Recreation Center. 

Water Slide Height Requirement: Riders must be at least 48 inches tall - no exceptions!

This is a public pool, which means that lap lanes may sometimes need to be shared.

All guests must shower before entering the pool. 

There are no shoes, food or drink allowed on the pool deck. 

For Private Swim Lessons, please fill out the request form (a link on the right) and bring to the Front Desk of the ARC. Thanks!
