Fully-Accessible Swimming Pool
This is San Antonio’s first fully-accessible swimming pool. It features 4′ maximum depth, sloped entry, hand rails and solar heating. The aquatic center has a separated pool specifically designed to accommodate the needs of children and adults who wear diapers. The smaller pool has its own drains and ultraviolet sanitation equipment for easy recovery should an accident occur. The two pools created by dividing the large existing pool allows children and adults who are uniformly excluded from pools in San Antonio to have a place to swim and receive aquatic therapy.
The pool is open for The Arc Participants and our partner agencies for weekly, day-time use. All Arc of San Antonio participants must have a pool consent form on file to swim during the day.
