Outdoor Pools

We offer two outdoor pools for recreational swimming and more!

Enjoy our outdoor pools for the summer! Open only during the summer months, our two family-centric outdoor pool facilities provide many opportunities to get involved both recreationally and socially at the Levin JCC in Durham, NC.

Our outdoor pools include:

  • A five-lane 25-yard recreational pool with a diving board and accessible entrance ramp. This pool is used throughout the week for swim lessons, our summer swim team and family swim time.
  • A family pool with a beach entry, a water slide, and water spray features. This outdoor pool is perfect for kids of all ages!

Interval Lap Swim Group Exercise Class

The JCC now offers a new and extra cool summer Group Exercise class: Interval Lap Swim. Develop cardio-respiratory fitness. Build muscle. Increase stamina. Stay cool in the evening heat while doing timed, interval laps. Appropriate for all fitness levels.

Tuesdays from 6:45pm-7:45pm.

Sensory Friendly Swim Time

Once a month on a Sunday, we’ll close the pools to our usual summer hustle and bustle to create a less crowded, sensory friendly environment for those with autism and other sensory needs. The slide and spray features will be turned off, and whistles will not be used except in case of emergency.

We’re excited to offer this for our members and guests who need it and their families. So that we can limit the crowd, RSVPs are needed for this program. Thank you in advance for keeping this a safe, quiet, successful space for those with sensory needs.

Sundays once a month 6:00pm-7:45pm. May 19, June 30, July 28, Aug 25.

To RSVP, please go here.
