North Whidbey Park and Recreation District operates the taxpayer-supported John Vanderzicht Memorial Pool in Oak Harbor, Washington. North Whidbey Island’s citizens enjoy a multitude of aquatic programs to enhance fitness and health for patrons of all ages. We also manage Clover Valley Ball Park and Off-Leash Dog Park on Ault Field Road.



Pool Temperature Update:

We have experienced a delay in the installation process for our new pool heater circulating pump. We anticipate having the process completed sometime on Friday. Once the installation is fully completed the water will start to warm, please remember this process will take some time since we are heating 200,000 gallons of water.

The water temperature has dropped about one degree each day this week and is currently at 77 degrees. We will update via email as frequently as possible when conditions change; however, you are encouraged to call ahead for a precise temperature reading.

Due to the current low pool temperature, we are cancelling tonight’s swim lesson and ALL lessons for tomorrow. Lessons will resume on Monday (when we anticipate warmer water). You will receive a credit for the missed lessons which can be used for a future session.

Thank you for your continued patience!


Pool Temperature Update:

Our new pool heater circulating pump has arrived and installation has commenced. We are currently waiting for an electrician to complete the electrical component of the installation process. Once this process is complete, we anticipate resuming normal pool temperatures fairly quickly.

Our current pool temperature is 79 degrees.

Thank you for your continued patience!


Valued Patrons:

Please be advised of low pool temperatures in both pools.

Our pool heater circulating pump is not working.

We anticipate having the replacement pump installed in approximately 7-10 days & will update you as more information becomes available.

We sincerely appreciate your patience and understanding as we address this maintenance issue. 

Thank you!
