The North Clackamas Aquatic Park is following state and national guidelines and will be adhering to these enhanced procedures to prevent the spread of COVID-19:

  • Daily temperature checks and health screenings of all employees and participants.
  • Use of face coverings are required (unless showering or swimming or if prior arrangements have been made with the Aquatic Supervisor).

Is Big Surf! recreation swim open?
No – Big Surf! is not being offered at this time and the wave pool and slides are closed.

Are Happy Valley residents still able to sign up for NCPRD aquatic programs?
The City of Happy Valley has officially withdrawn from North Clackamas Parks and Recreation District. Happy Valley residents are welcome to sign up for NCPRD aquatic programs, but as of July 1, 2020 are no longer eligible to receive discounted NCPRD resident rates and priority registration. As a result, it may be difficult to register for high-demand programs such as lap swim time and swim lessons.

What if I need an accommodation?
If you need any accommodations due to medical conditions or disabilities please contact Jason Kemmerich, to make arrangements prior to your reservations.

Will lockers be available?
No – although locker rooms will be open, lockers will not be available. We encourage swimmers to arrive in their swim attire, as only the family change rooms will be utilized for entrance to the pools. Personal belongings may be stored on a chair surrounding the pool deck as designated.

Will showers be available?
At this time, the four family change rooms are available with showers prior to swimming and only one (1) shower will be available in each locker room for patrons’ use after swimming. This is to help enforce the social/physical distancing guidelines.

Am I still able to use my swim pass membership?
Yes – swim passes will be extended from the closure until your first registration. Please contact staff for a specific instructions regarding usage of pass with our on-line system.

Can I use coupons and punch cards for my swim session?
No – punch cards, coupons and other discounts are not being accepted at this time. Contact us if you would like a credit or refund for your punch cards at or call (503) 794-8080.

Am I required to wear a mask? Are staff members?
Yes – all staff members and patrons are required to wear masks when not showering or swimming.

Are drop-ins allowed for lap swim or exercise classes?
No – advanced registration is required to ensure capacity limits and that adequate spacing is allowed for social distancing.

What should I bring?
Patrons are encouraged to wear their swim suit and bring a personal water bottle. Per the Oregon Health Authority, drinking fountains – with the exception of a bottle fill station located in the lobby – are not available. Equipment will not be provided for lap swim or exercise classes. If you would like to use any equipment, please bring those items with you. Additionally, some swim equipment will now be for sale at our front desk.

Are children allowed to swim?
At this time only Adult Lap Swim and aquatic fitness programs are being offered, which includes patrons 13 years of age and older.

Can I reserve a lane to myself?
We are allowing eight swimmers to register for the lap pool at a time.  This includes two swimmers sharing a lane in the outside lanes (one being the ADA lap lane with ramp and stair access.) The dive well lanes will not be shared unless patrons are from same household.

Can I share a lane with my family member?
Yes, as long as each person has reserved a lane at the same time.  The social distancing monitor will assist with lane assignment as patrons arrive.
