How old can you be without adult supervision?

I’m not swimming; do I still need to pay the gate fee?
Yes, all persons entering the facility must pay the designated gate fee.

What is the weather policy? Refunds for inclement weather?
The City of Richardson uses the Weather Bug app, which includes a Spark Lightning feature that identifies where the nearest strike of lightning has occurred. If there is lighting within a 10-mile radius of the aquatic center it will close for at least a half hour. The facility will remain closed for a half hour succeeding the last lightning strike within a 10-mile radius.

For the safety of our patrons, all people must leave the pool gate area and remain outside the facility until it is deemed safe to reopen. Patrons are encouraged to call the facility to check on the current status.

Unfortunately, we cannot predict the weather. By entering our facility you are assuming the risk of inclement weather. Refunds are not issued due to inclement weather; however, a stamp will be issued so you can return to the facility if it reopens in the same day.

What is the height requirement for the water slides?
All riders must be at least 48-inches tall to ride our slides. The height requirement is set by the slide manufacturers and we cannot make any exceptions.
