Selected as Best Public Pool by the River Front Times in 2014, the Shaw Park Aquatic Center is an excellent way for those who live/work in Clayton, or attend a Clayton School District school to relax and enjoy the warm summer months. This three-pool complex consists of a 50-meter competition pool, dive tank, and zero-depth children's pool. The Shaw Park Aquatic Center offers recreational swimming, lap swimming and various specialty classes throughout the summer.  For pricing information, see the Admission page.

Lap Swim

Lap Swim is available during all hours that the facility is open. Only season pass or punch card holders may also enjoy an invigorating morning or evening lap swim while SPAC is closed to the general public (listed below). Lap swim is defined as independent continuous swimming in the lanes; recreational swim is not permitted during designated lap swim time.

May 28 - August 14
Monday through Friday 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Monday through Thursday 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Splash & Play

(Ages 6 months - 6 years) Infants, toddlers, and young children may enjoy the Children’s Pool before it opens to the general public. Parents and caregivers are expected to directly supervise children in their care. Please note: Children attending Splash & Play must be season passholders in order to participate. Adult season passholders may bring children who are passholders, or may purchase a Splash & Play punch card to bring children who are not passholders as their guests. Each non-passholder child must be accounted for on a punch card for each day of attendance. (There is no punch for the accompanying passholder adult).
