The warm water pool is generously supported by the Friendly Rosenthal Fund of the Oregon Jewish Community Foundation.

We offer a comprehensive aquatics program for our members and guests. We’re especially proud to offer both a 25-yard lap pool and a warm water pool which is an ideal environment for relaxation, recuperation, and recreation.

Both pools offer ADA-compliant accessibility lifts for those who need assistance getting in and out of the water. Our helpful staff can show you how the lifts operate and can even assist you, if you like.

We invite you to come learn more about our offerings – from swim lessons and group exercise to lap and open swim, we really do have something for everyone!

Who Benefits from Using our Warm Pool?

In a word: Everybody! Whether you’re looking for a less intimidating environment to help you (or your child) conquer your fear of the water or you’re living with the aches and pains of everyday life, warm water can help.

Open Swim

Open swim is available at varying times during the day and throughout the week. We welcome swimmers of all ages to enjoy recreation time with our fun noodles and floating mats. Supervision policy applies.

Adult Ex

Come experience the benefits of aquatic exercise! The water provides buoyancy to reduce joint stress and minimize balance problems. Many find relief from their aches and pains thanks to the water’s natural hydrostatic pressure, which can help reduce swelling, improve heart and lung function, and help regulate blood pressure. We provide specialized equipment to help you attain your exercise goals. Our ADA-compliant lift has multiple options for different needs and can accommodate up to 250lbs.

Aquatic Therapy

Some who use the pool have injuries or disabilities, including arthritis, fibromyalgia, spinal-cord injuries, stroke or accident-related injuries. Call to schedule a private session with Doug Kinnaird (LMT #2958) and find out for yourself the healing powers of water.

  • “Using the pool has increased my mobility and markedly decreased my pain level.I am still working full time, and two years ago I wasn’t sure how long that would continue.Nothing else I have tried has been as effective.” -Susan F .
