Pool Rentals & Reservations
The Aquatic Center is your go-to destination for your next birthday party, graduation celebration, or end-of-season get-together! We offer a variety of different packages including private rentals or just a place to reserve your spot at the pool!
The City of Middleton Aquatic Center is the perfect setting for your next special birthday party or gathering. When you rent, you receive entire use of the pool including the water slide, diving board, seating areas, locker room, and restrooms. You may also bring in food and drink (non-alcoholic) to serve your hungry guests (sorry, no glass allowed).
What is included with private rentals?
Private rentals provide you and your guests' exclusive use of the entire facility outside of normal open swim hours. This includes all admission costs, use of the water slide, and diving board, as well as more amenities that the location offers!
Are lifeguards included in my private rental?
Rentals include enough lifeguards to accommodate up to XXX people in the pool at one time as well as an on-duty pool manager and first aid care. If your rental exceeds this number, an additional lifeguard will be required for every 100 people at the cost of $25 per hour. To determine if you need or require additional lifeguard staff, please contact the Parks and Recreation office team.
Can I bring in my own food?
For private rentals, you may bring in food and drink for your guests. Alcoholic beverages and any items containing glass are not allowed. Party Packages during an open swim may bring in cake, drinks, and snacks for guests. No refrigerator or freezer is available for rental usage.
Is the concession stand available during private rentals?
Private rentals do not include the use of the concession stand. If you would like to have the stand open, please contact the Park and Recreation team to discuss your options.
Can I bring in floatation devices and/ or toys to a private rental?
The only floatation devices allowed in the pools are Coast Guard-approved lifejackets. No other items such as water wings, noodles, or rafts are not allowed. Small toys and balls are allowed into the pool for play in the leisure pool. Large balls, diving sticks, squirt toys, or other playthings are not allowed.
Can I decorate the facility for a private rental or Party Package?
Yes, but with limitations:
• No signs posted outside of the pool or in the park.
• No wires, ropes, strings, or poles may be strung from any part of the pool reservation area.
• No staples, nails, screws, or other fasteners put into walls or posts.
• Decorations will need to be put up and taken down within the timeframe of your rental. Renters will not be able to enter early or stay late to take care of decorations.
Who, will regulate guests coming into the facility for my rental?
You will be responsible for monitoring guests coming in for your private rental. Pool staff will not regulate who enters and exits the facility. For a Party Package, you need to gather your group prior to entering the facility. Any additional admissions for a Party Package will need to be paid before entering the facility.
What happens if it rains or we have to cancel?
In the event of bad weather or you want to cancel, we will try and reschedule your rental for another date. If no other date can be agreed upon, unfortunately, we are not able to provide refunds for rentals canceled by the renter. In the event the pools are shut down due to a mechanical issue or other unforeseen circumstances, the renter will be able to reschedule their event or receive a full refund.
