Aquatic Programs

For fun, low-impact exercise, take advantage of recreational and competitive aquatic programs for your whole family at the Owensboro Health Healthpark. You’ll enjoy:

  • A 10-lane, 25-yard competition-size pool
  • A warm-water therapy pool
  • Aquatic classes offering low- to high-intensity exercise

Swim Lessons

Whether you have a child who’s new to the water or you’d like to brush up on your stroke skills, private swim lessons are available year-round for 6-month-olds through senior adults. Your instructor will tailor the lessons to your needs and pace.

The cost for four 30-minute lessons for children ages 16 and under is $80 for members and $96 for non-members.

The cost for four 30-minute lessons for ages 17 and older is $100 for members and $135 for non-members.

Swim Teams

Swim lessons can help your child prepare to join the Heatwaves summer swim team, an Owensboro-area high school swim team or the Owensboro Marlins, all of which meet at the Owensboro Health Healthpark.

Tot Time Swimming

Wanting to introduce your child (4 months - 3 years old) to the water? Tot Time is a great way for you to teach your child life-saving swimming techniques alongside a swim instructor. You will enjoy the class as much as your child does. 

The cost is $50 for members and non-members per month.

The class meets every Saturday in May, July & September from 11:30 a.m. - Noon.

Masters Swim

Prepare for a triathlon! If you are at least 18 years old and know how to swim, improve your technique and endurance by joining our Masters Swim Team. You don’t need to swim competitively to participate in this group. A certified Masters coach will guide you through a workout that can help you:

  • Reduce stress
  • Lose weight and lower your cholesterol
  • Increase muscle tone
  • Build camaraderie with fellow swimmers

Masters Swim is free for Healthpark members and $40 per month for non-members. United States Masters Swimming (USMS) registration is required.

Masters Swim hours are Monday - Wednesday & Friday, 5:00 a.m. - 6:00 a.m.

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 check our Healthpark mobile app or call us for updates. During busy times, we encourage circle swimming to make it easier for you to participate.

You’ll feel safer in the water knowing Healthpark lifeguards are Red-Cross certified, meaning they’re trained in preventing, recognizing and responding to aquatic emergencies. Lifeguards monitor pool activities at various times of the day.
