Aquatics

The City of Independence park complex offers both indoor and outdoor swimming facilities.  You can review the following schedules for swim time availability.
*** The IHS Swim Team season has begun, and the Indoor Lap Pool will be used for practice from 3 to 6pm Monday through Friday beginning October 29th. Activity & Whirl Pools as well as Steam Room and Sauna will still be open, but we recommend anyone looking for Open Swim to avoid these times.***
