Pool closing for Poop: If someone has a bowel movement in the pool, we will clear everyone out of the water and vacuum. It requires 30 minutes from time of chemical shock to re-open the pool. We will announce when it is safe. (notify staff immediately if you see or smell an issue)


Poop Closing for Temperature or other issues: If the temperature is below 75 degrees the pool will remain closed. Occasionally there maybe other issues that require the pool to be shut down for an amount of time. Our goal is to post on the Facebook page and post a notification on the front door. Please note (we are human) and occasionally can't make that happen. If not and the door is locked, please look on our FB page or call us at 918-622-7178 to leave a message. Thank you.


If you desire a refund and you were in the pool area for less than 1 hour we will offer a rain check or a refund at the discretion of the office staff.


Pool closing for Vomit: You will be asked to clear out of the water. We will then announce our pool will be closing for the remainder of the day. Because of Oklahoma Law, we are unable to remain open. We are required to put chemicals in the pool to keep the pool clean. We would like to encourage everyone to be careful after eating. If a person becomes choked on water, they become more prone to vomiting. The end result, no one can enjoy the pool that day. Upon closing for the rest of the day, a rain check will be given if you have been in the pool for 60 min (1 hr) or less. Please see office staff for details.
