Warm Water Pool and Arthritis Aquatics

The warm and inviting atmosphere of our Warm Water Pool provides a sanctuary for individuals seeking relief and relaxation. As the largest Arthritis Foundation aquatics program in Wisconsin, we take great pride in offering a space where individuals can improve their mobility and ease discomfort through gentle aquatic exercises.

In addition to the therapeutic benefits, our pool is also home to the Harbor Swim School program, catering to swimmers of all ages and skill levels. Whether you prefer a family swim during our open swim times or an aquatic workout during our adults-only swim time, the pool’s temperature of 91 degrees creates the perfect environment for rejuvenation.

The convenient location of the Warm Water Pool, inside the track, ensures easy access for all visitors. Our facility is also designed to accommodate families with our family locker room, located just a short distance away for added convenience. We strive to create a space where individuals and families can not only improve their physical well-being but also find a sense of community and support.
