The Livermore Area Recreation and Park District operates two (2) aquatic facilities, the Robert Livermore Aquatics Center and the May Nissen Swim Center. The Robert Livermore Aquatics Center spans 45,000 square-feet with a 25-yard-by-33-meter pool available for lap and recreational swimming, lessons, water polo and exercise classes. The Center’s zero-depth-entry activity pool has an interactive play structure with waterfalls and water cannons. The pool also includes a 22-foot-long spiral water slide. This year-round facility offers a wide variety of programs and classes designed for all ages.
The May Nissen Swim Center has been in operation by the District since 1962. This facility features an eight-lane lap pool measuring 25-meters long by 20-yards wide. There is an additional wading pool within the facility which is perfect for little ones. The May Nissen Swim Center is a seasonal pool which is open from May to August of each year.
We strive to ensure a safe and fun aquatic environment for our community and this requires everyone's cooperation. When you visit either the Robert Livermore Aquatic Center or the May Nissen Swim Center, our Pool Rules are the basic guidelines that are expected from our guests. Guests will be expected to follow all posted rules and oral instructions from the aquatic staff at all times; failure to comply will result in being asked to leave the facility without a refund.
The Robert Livermore Aquatics Center is available to rent for organization programs and classes. Applicants will be required to rent a minimum of three (3) lanes per hour, unless the rental is the only activity operating within the facility at that time which would require the applicant to rent the entire facility. Rental times will be calculated in full hours. Aquatic rentals will include a minimum of two (2) District lifeguards, unless District staff determine additional staff is needed which will be at the expense of the applicant, for the duration of the rental. To ensure the health and safety of our community, applicants and their program participants will be required to follow the current Alameda County Public Health Department's Health Order while utilizing our facility. Applicants will be required to submit a Site Safety Plan forty-five (45) days prior to the rental date which will be reviewed and approved by District staff.
Applications are accepted on first-come-first-serve basis. To book and reserve a date, applicants are required to submit a completed and signed Aquatics Rental Application and a refundable deposit. All other rental fees and forms are due forty-five (45) days prior to the rental date. Applicants will be required to understand and follow the Aquatics Rental Rules and Regulations if they choose to rent with the Livermore Area Recreation and Park District. Submitting an application does not guarantee and/or secure the rental date.
