Frosty from the weather? Warm up this Recreation Week at our first Polar Bear Plunge!
When all of the lane lines are removed, the Sheerr Pool becomes the perfect venue for lounging on pool floats, taking a plunge from our diving board, or playing various pool games. Too chilly to take a swim? Defrost in our sauna; heated to 160 degrees, it should alleviate even the bitterest winter chill! Hot chocolate and warm apple cider will be served.
