Pool season never ends in Southern Nevada, even in the winter

Summer is technically pool season, but several Las Vegas Valley pools are open year-round.

“Swimming is a great cardiovascular exercise,” said Sharon Cornell, program supervisor at Hollywood Aquatic Center, 1550 S. Hollywood Blvd. “It works all of your muscle groups. The water provides low-impact resistance. It’s good for seniors because it enables them to work their muscles without a lot of impact on your joints.”

The center is one of several facilities that offer winter swimming, classes, exercise programs and water sports.

“We have several traditional sports here, along with inner tube water polo,” Cornell said. “It’s just like regular water polo, but in an inner tube, so you don’t have to tread water as proficiently. The tube also takes some of the physical contact out of the sport and makes it more recreational.”

Las Vegas added an unusual sport this summer: log rolling.

“One of our staff members saw it as a product demonstration at a conference,” said David Lund, principal aquatics specialist for the city of Las Vegas. “We purchased two of the plastic logs and it has been very popular. The classes fill up quickly.”

The next log-rolling class begins Jan. 7 at the Pavilion Center Pool, 101 S. Pavilion Center Drive.

Most of the winter pools are indoors. The exception is the outdoor pool at Henderson Multigenerational Center/Aquatic Complex, 250 S. Green Valley Parkway. The pool’s water temperature is kept in the low to mid-80s, so the only difficulty might be getting out.

“The pools are great,” Cornell said. “The water’s heated. The environment’s nice. You can still have a really good workout and you’re not fighting the elements.”
