Everyone who is on the guest list of 30 may check in at the pool party entrance located to the right of the Aquatic entrance. Look for a door with a blue canopy and a whiteboard displaying the names of the guests of honor for that day.

Our staff members use your list to check guests in and allow them into the facility.
The 30 guests are considered entries into the facility. Anyone age 2 and older that enters the facility is counted as part of those 30 guests, regardless of whether or not they plan on swimming. The fee charged to patrons of the Wackford Community and Aquatic Complex is an entrance fee.
Additional canopies can be brought into the facility but cannot be setup alongside the canopy provided by CSD. Guests are welcome to set up outside of the pool party area, such as the grass area next to the concessions stand, or on the grass behind the pool party area. Please be respectful of other parties and understand that if your party time is over we ask that you set up the canopy at least 10 feet away from the party canopies.
The facility does not have heating or cooling storage available for pool parties. We are not responsible for your food or other belongings and do not have the ability to store them for you. Items such as cake and ice cream will need to stay with you at your pool party area. We suggest avoiding ice cream or having a family member or friend bring it right before it is time to eat.
