Lap Swim

Enjoy lap swim in our competition-size pool seven days a week. If you’re younger than 16, you'll need to ask an adult to accompany you. The number of lanes available changes throughout the day, so call us for updates or sign up to receive our weekly schedule. During busy times, we encourage circle swimming to make it easier for you to participate.

Certified Lifeguards

You'll feel safer in the water knowing the Owensboro Health Healthpark lifeguards are certified by the American Red cross meaning they're trained in preventing, recognizing and responding to aquatic emergencies.

We do offer lifeguard certification classes. To learn availability, please visit the Owensboro Health Healthpark front desk or call 270-688-5433.
