The pool has both a shallow area with a slide as well as a deep end. There are seven 25-yard lanes available for lap swimmers and a covered picnic area with tables. Red Cross certified Youth swim lessons are offered as well as contracted aqua fitness classes during our pool season. The pool is open to all authorized MWR patrons including active duty and their families, military retirees and their families, and DoD civilian employees.

Be advised that our Florida weather requires us to close the pool as a precautionary measure if we receive a notification of a severe weather warning. This action is required in accordance with base policy. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
At this time we are not able to offer swim lessons because we currently do not have a certified Water Safety Instructor on staff. We are currently recruiting for an employee with this qualification. For information on current swim classes in the area please contact NAS Pensacola MWR https://www.navymwrpensacola.com/programs/3f6ae078-64c1-40e2-abb7-e53be3cf6e53 (see attached flyer) or follow the link to the University of West Florida's swim lesson schedule: https://uwf.edu/offices/recreation-and-sports-services/aquatics/swim-lessons-schedule/
In addition, remember that Whiting Park Outdoor Recreation Area . http://www.navymwrwhitingfield.com/programs/b5da2722-8d35-4d0f-a117-d47d363e2053, located right in downtown Milton on the Blackwater River, is truly the best swimmin' hole around! There's a brand new buoyed "Wading Area", kids playground equipment, horse shoes, volleyball, basketball court, fishing pier, pavilions with bbq's, and lots of watercraft to use too.
For a bit of adventure, Tickets & Travel “http://www.navymwrwhitingfield.com/programs/bfc5a10e-f45a-458a-8f8a-627a59316afc” can provide discount tickets to waterparks near and far, from Big Kahuna's in Destin to the brand new Volcano Mountain at Universal Orlando.
