The indoor pool at the Belmont Plaza will remain closed for up to four months while necessary repairs are made to issues that have recently been discovered. Swim lessons and water exercise classes typically scheduled at the indoor pool have been cancelled, but visitors to the outdoor pool, which is heated to a comfortable 82 degrees, are still encouraged to engage in lap swimming. Locker rooms and the weight room will also be available during outdoor pool hours. Admission prices are $4.00 for adults, $3.00 for youth and seniors.

Martin Luther King, Jr. Pool
Silverado Park Pool
Belmont Plaza Pool opened in 1968 and has been the site of Olympic Trials, NCAA Swimming Championships and USA Water Polo tournaments in the past. Several college conference championship meets continue to be held at the pool each year. The pool is popular with both competitive and recreational swimmers due to the extremely smooth water provided by the depth of the pool in the competition area, the extra wide and extra deep gutters and the tiny inlets on the bottom of the pool.
