To ensure the safety of our community and in following Red Cross recommendations for pool operations, Lakeside requires children under age 12 to perform a brief swim test. This test is offered at announced times throughout the summer or during open swim times, and will be required for children to swim in the deep end of the pool. The test includes jumping into the water to fully submerge and return to the surface, swim length of pool using front crawl and return on your back keeping legs horizontal the entire time, and tread water for 30 seconds. Children that pass the swim test will have their names logged for the entire season at the pool office and will receive a wrist band each time they enter.

Lifeguards reserve the right to swim test anyone at their own discretion. For more information about the children’s swim test, call the pool office at 419-702-7598.

The pool is available to reserve for private parties. For more information or to book a pool party, contact or call 419-798-4461, ext. 279.
