Family Pass

The Pre-Season Sale for the Family Pass begins April 1 and allows all families unlimited waterpark/public swim and fitness center visits from Memorial Day through Labor Day. A family of four that visits a city pool an average of two times a week receives a substantial savings over the drop-in price when they purchase a Family Pass for the season. The savings increase the more frequently you attend. Family Passes include unlimited waterpark/public swim, lap swim and fitness center visits.

How the Pass Works

  • Only the MMR Family Pass can be used at all four pools. Passes purchased for Eldorado, Cactus and Chaparral may be used at any of the three pools. See below for pricing.
  • Your family will be issued a single Summer Family Pass card.
  • Additional/replacement cards may be purchased for $5 each.
  • The pass is sold to the immediate family** of the main contact on the account.
  • Any pass over four family members are charged an additional member fee.

**Main contact's parents, spouse, spouse's parents, siblings, children, stepchildren, and adopted children if all are residing at the same address.
