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.
