An Update on COVID-19
Dear Cascade Aquatic & Recreation Members and Visitors,

We will be reopening our facility this Saturday on May 16th at 10am. Hooray! We are so very excited to see everyone again and open our doors after being closed for the past two months. This reopening comes with a lot of thought and careful planning from our staff to ensure the safety of our staff and patrons. We completely understand if you are a bit hesitant to visit us, we can assure you we are doing everything we can to keep our community as safe as possible. With the help of Governor Little's guidelines for reopening gyms and fitness facilities, and resources from the CDC, we have put energy into creating our own protocols, specific to us. Please see our protocols and guidelines for reopening for our fitness room, fitness classes and pool below. Thank you for your patience and ongoing support during this time, it does not go unnoticed.
Sincerely,
Cascade Aquatic & Recreation Center Team
