1-pool lift

Aquatic Lift

Swimming recreational opportunities are now more available to people with disabilities at all public swimming pools, thanks in large measure to a grant from the AWS Foundation. A PAL-portable aquatic lift, placed at each pool, can transfer  individuals from the side and place them into the water.

New ADA guidelines required a lift at each of public pool, including McMillen, Memorial and Northside. The PAL-portable aquatic lift (battery powered) is a sturdy, useful piece of equipment for use by people with disabilities.

This model is ADA compliant, lifts 300 lbs., is completely portable so that it can be put away when not in use, and has a 240 degree rotation to ensure a safe transfer area.

Open Swim for Disabled Youth

Open swims for children with disabilities or special needs will be Mondays from 5:15-6:15 p.m. beginning June 8. No pre-registration is required. The swim is FREE. Please check in before entering the pool. A parent must accompany each child in the water.
