Where are we going today?
Southwest Community Center and Pool is a great place to go if you just want to stay cool, have some fun, and enjoy some water adventure!
This community experience is also paired with the community center. With rock climbing walls, fitness room, and basketball court, you might really need that cool off!
The pool itself if a great place to visit if love the water - whether you love to swim, want to play, have a splash, or try out some laps.
The 25 yard pool has 6 lap lanes perfect for practicing those strokes you've learnt. It's a great place to kids just starting out too, as they can really get a chance to try out their skills without being surrounded by wave pools, slides and commotion.
The pool is indoors, so it's always heated to 84 degrees. Sounds pretty great to us! That means, whatever the weather, you can enjoy this community experience and have fun AND keep fit. No excuses!
There is also a whirlpool spa heated to 102 degrees. Something for the parents! The water depths range from zero, to 9 feet, so even if you have little ones in the family, they will be able to enjoy the water just as much as everyone else.
Community fun for the family in Portland, Oregon!
Make a splash all year round!

I usually come here once a week for open gym. If it's not Spring Break or a random day off school you can expect to get some good basketball run on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from Noon to 2pm. Price is a little steep ($6.75) but lets you use the entire facility (gym, weight room, pool, etc..). I just wish there was a different, cheaper, fee for those of us that just use the basketball court. The entire staff is always available and ready to assist.

I use the pool Mon-Friday for lap swimming. Its a great pool and usually not too crowded. I have a monthly pass which makes it not to expensive. Sometimes the parking lot gets full and you have to circle around or go park on the street. The locker room is typical "high school gym"

Good clean fun. Kids admission to the pool is only 3.25 and the kids I babysit love this pool. There is a 1 ft play area with fountains and what not, a rope swing, and a really big slide. Lifeguards are well trained and keep a good eye on the kids. I love taking my kids here!

We took our four little ones (all under the age of 7) to Open Swim on a Sunday. The staff is very friendly. The indoor water slide is pretty darn fast for being indoors. All and all we had a great time until we used the family dressing room to get ready. They are probably smaller than they should be and the floors were extremely wet. We had three little ones fall by the time we got out of there. The floors were way too slippery. If they can do something about that it would be a great time for the whole family.

This is a great location-the pool is amazing (my niece thought she was in heaven in the kids pool) and the whole place is always clean and bright. The cardio room can get full (and warm!) but it's a good place to get a workout in.
If you only come sporadically the 20 visit card is a great option-it saves you a few bucks a visit (~$2 I think?) and you can use it for multiple people, so if you're dragging a friend or a spouse along everyone can get punched in on your card. Everyone saves!
