The Sportspark swimming pool temperature is regulated by our boiler systems. We strive to maintain a water temperature that satisfies all of our users. Users include infants and children, seniors, avid swimmers and a swim team. The pool water temperature range is 78 – 85 degrees.
Attention: June 1, 2019 - In response to numerous complaints we have received over the past several weeks, Sportspark staff members have been actively exploring ways to maintain a consistent temperature both inside and outside the pool area. We take readings twice a day in an effort to keep the temperature consistent while we explore a permanent solution to this problem. We will continue to keep you informed of our progress and apologize for this temporary inconvenience.
