Celebrate your birthday party or special event with us at the outdoor pool. The pool deck has swings, tables with chairs, and lounge chairs. There is a shallow water area for sunbathing or for small children to enjoy, volleyball nets, basketball goals, and water polo goals in the pool. Your guests can also enjoy other features such as the vortex and hot tub for anyone over 13 years of age.
The outdoor pool is available for special events April 1st-October 31st (weather permitting). You must be a member of the Student Recreation Center to reserve the outdoor pool. Pool parties cannot be combined with Rock Wall or other parties; you must register for those areas separately. Two parties can be booked per event date unless one of the parties has booked 76-100 guests, which would make it a private event.
You must check in at the front desk before going to the pool deck to set up. Once you have checked in with the lifeguards you can use the outdoor pool gate to bring in your party items.
We provide lifeguards on the deck, tables for each party, umbrellas, noodles, volleyball and basketballs, and use of all furniture on the pool deck.
You may bring in pool toys, food and drinks for your event. You may also bring your own canopy/tent.
Your guests can park in the parking lot in front of the Student Recreation Center or in the lot below the pool by the pump room (once on Jaguar Blvd, go to four-way stop and turn left rather than making a U-turn.) Parking is also available in the gravel lot off of Old Shell Road before you get to Jaguar Blvd. Please note that this lot is not available during USA baseball games and parking may be difficult during special events at the Mitchell Center.
