Fall Outdoor Pool Update

As fall approaches, we're excited to announce that outdoor pools at branches across the Triangle will remain open beyond Labor Day this year! 

In addition, as we begin to transition into fall programming and increased indoor pool usage, we are making some adjustments to our lap swimming designations at both outdoor and indoor pools in an effort to safely accommodate as many members as possible.

We now have listings on our schedules for "single" and "shared" lanes.

Lap Lane | Shared Lane

This reservation is for an individual swimmer who will share a lane with a second individual reservation, yielding two swimmers in the lane.

Lap Lane | Single Lane

This reservation is for single swimmer/household lap swim. Members of the same household may use the same lap lane during their reserved time.


  • Reservations are in 30-minute increments.
  • Swimmers should limit their lap swim to one hour, or two 30-minute reservations.
  • Reservation blocks will become available 48 hours before the reservation time
  • Please make sure to "Book Now" to reserve your spot. If you are unable to use your reservation, please make sure to cancel as early as possible (2+ hours notice) to allow others to utilize the vacated space.
