Swimming Pool

Announcements

Exciting news! Due to the increased demand for lap* and leisure** swim, we have added a call-ahead reservation system! Simply call the Safari Island front desk (952.442.0695) to reserve a 45-minute time slot. Reservations can be made up to two weeks in advance. We strongly recommend calling ahead as lanes will be filled on a first-reserved, first-served basis. Walk-ins may be accepted based on current availability. Reserve your time slot today!

 

*Lap swim is classified as continuous stroke swimming throughout the length of the lane.

**Leisure swim is classified as non-continuous lap swimming, water walking, independent water aerobics, and the like.

Aquatics

We have pools galore here at Safari Island. Our recreation pool is a zero depth entry, 57,000 gallon pool with a giant water slide and an elephant water slide for the little ones. Adjacent to our rec pool is a therapeutic spa for those in need of a little relaxation. Our 8 lane pool is for you to enjoy lap swim or free swim with diving boards at various times of the day.
