The buoyancy of water decreases joint compression forces thus decreasing pain associated with exercise. The viscosity of water provides resistance in all movements and exercise intensity can be varied by increasing movement speed. The warm water pools, averaging 90-92 degrees, increase circulation, flexibility and promote relaxation.

Classes, Registration and Payment
In-person registration is manditory. Due to our first come, first served policy, we can no longer accept registration over the phone. Each class is 45 minutes long and meets one time per week, unless otherwise noted. Payment is due at the time of registration (cash, check, credit card). Registration continues throughout the session on a space-availability basis. If you register after the current session has begun, your fees will be pro-rated.
Must be a minimum of 14 years of age to participate in classes and accompanied by a responsible paying adult in the class.
Please note: Patrons requiring assistance in and out of the water or locker rooms must be accompanied by a caregiver or attendant for assistant; CP does not provide this service.
What our Patrons are saying about The Aquatic Center:
“I have Parkinson’s and the exercise in the water helps my balance.”
“I can only walk in the water otherwise I am wheelchair bound, also the exercise in the water seems to help more than on land. I have less pain.”
“I recovered more quickly after joint replacement surgery.”
“I can walk with 2 canes. I was using a wheelchair 2 years ago.”
“The daily stretching exercises I do are absolutely working for my problem; without it I can hardly walk.”
“On days when I don’t go into the water I’m in much more pain than on days when I do go in the water.”
“I would not be able to function without pain without using the pool. The water temperature of 91° is so healing.”
“Water exercise has eliminated my nagging knee pain.”
“I can move better and back is healing better.”
“Ability to bend knee, walk further, walk without limping.”
