Pool Closings Due To Inclement Weather

Whenever the Urbandale School system closes due to inclement weather, the pool will also close. In the event that school is not in session and the weather is questionable, the answering machine at the pool (515-278-3959) will announce if the pool is closed. Please call prior to coming.

The Gift of Life Giving Tree!

A tree is set up at the Urbandale Swimming Pool to sponsor a child with the gift of life learning to swim.
With each $40 donation, your name will be added to the tree and an Urbandale child in need will receive a scholarship for swimming lessons.
If you are interested in donating $40 for a child to take swimming lessons, please stop by the pool and contribute to the Gift of Life Giving Tree.

Swimming Pool Refund Policy

To be eligible for a refund you must cancel at least 7 days before the first class meeting (14 days prior for pool rentals). After that, NO REFUNDS will be given unless:

  • The program or class is canceled. 
  • The participant is unable to participate because of unforeseen medical reasons. The refund will then be prorated based on the number of classes attended. If more than 50% of the program has been completed, no refund will be issued.
Refunds will not be issued for circumstances beyond our control, i.e. weather or electrical outages. Please allow three weeks for a refund to be processed.
