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.

Whether you’re here for competition, general fitness, swim instruction, or just a fun time splashing with your family, you’ll love it here.

We are the happiest place in town!

See you at the pool,

2015 Summer Schedule


Great News for Military Patrons


Admission to Open Swim and Lap Swim is now FREE for Active Duty personnel and their Dependents.

Retirees and their dependents will continue to pay discounted admission of $2.50 for Open Swim and Lap Swim.

Free and discounted admission is provided through an agreement with NAS Whidbey Island MWR.

MWR has been very generous in extending their contract to include FREE Open Swim and Lap Swim for Active Duty Family Members. Military dependents will pay full price for Aerobics classes. We are hopeful that MWR will extend their contract to include fee support for Aerobics classes in the future.

As a courtesy to our patrons, while we are making this transition, we will continue to honor the $2.50 discounted admission price for dependents attending Aerobics classes through June 15, 2015. Beginning June 16, 2015 regular admission prices will apply for Aerobics.

**Patrons ages 10 and older must show a Military ID card on each visit to receive FREE or discounted admission.**

Thank You for Swimming with Us!
