Aquatics Information During Normal Circumstances

The City of Cottonwood has two municipal pools. The Indoor Leisure Pool is inside the Cottonwood Recreation Center (CRC). This pool is open yearly and offers adult lap swim, a 180-foot slide, a lazy river and water play apparatus for even more fun. The Cottonwood Aquatics Center (CAC) includes an outdoor pool open from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day. Recreational swimming and adult lap swimming are scheduled daily at this venue. Please read the Cottonwood Aquatics Center Guide for detailed information.

Adult Water Aerobics

Whether you are recovering from an injury or wanting an intense workout, we have a water exercise class to fit your needs. All classes are held in the CRC Indoor Leisure Pool from August through May. Classes are offered in both the CRC Indoor Leisure Pool and the CAC Outdoor Pool during the summer. Please view the current schedule of classes (PDF).
