The pool, which sits adjacent to the beautiful Tower Lake includes lockers, restrooms and a concession area as well as a small splash pad for the youngest visitors.  It is accessible from North University Drive with parking available at Lot 10 which sits just southwest of The Gardens and Cougar Lake Drive. 

While parking on campus typically requires a paid permit, parking at this lot during the summer will be free to all who are visiting the pool.

Family memberships start at $320, senior citizen memberships are $150 and daily passes will also be available for $5 per day or $4 per day for seniors and children 4-15, kids three and under swim free.  Group swim lessons are also available in the morning.
