Lap Swimmers - Action Required!

OPRYD launched a new online registration system, PerfectMind, on March 13, 2018. If you are a current lap swimmer with a Swim Pass (Adult or Senior 10 and 30 Swim Pass), you will need to take action by June 30, 2018 in order to transfer your current swims over to PerfectMind. These instructions will help expedite the process and will save you time!

Hello Swimmers,

OPRYD Aquatics is committed to providing pool access citywide following our return from Shelter-In-Place and color-coded tier systems (purple, red, orange, yellow, etc).

The Covid-19 pandemic had a negative impact on the availability of OPRYD certified aquatics staff. As we add additional certified lifeguards, program hours, days, and times are subject to change and/or expand.

You will notice that Lions Pool and Temescal Pool each feature weekdays without lap swim or other program offerings. On those dates, aquatics staff will shift to East Oakland Sports Center as we phase the re-opening of the Water Park.

Lap Swim Hours – Effective August, 7th 2021

Lions Pool

  • 11:00am – 2:30pm (Mon, Tue, Wed, Fri)
  • 6:00pm – 8:00pm (Mon, Tue, Wed, Fri)
  • 11:00am – 2:30pm (Sat)

Temescal Pool

  • 12:30pm – 2:30pm (Tue – Fri)
