Swimming Pools

The swimming facilities at the Quillian Center include a large swimming pool for youth and adults and a smaller pool designed for your children. The full-sized pool features dual slides and two diving boards.

The smaller pool, known as the "Noah's Ark Pool", was VOTED BEST POOL IN HOUSTON IN A POLL BY GREAT DAY HOUSTON!!! This year marks the 20th Anniversary of Noah's Ark. On the 20th day of each month, the 20th person will swim for FREE!

We are excited to announce that Noah's Ark has undergone a full renovation leading up to this summer. 

It's our most popular pool because it's perfect for pre-k and early elementary school-aged children. It's shallow, and it provides a great area for splashing and playing.
A "Noah's Ark" structure is located in the center of the pool and includes three slides and a crawl-through.
A mushroom water drop, a rainbow slide, a coconut water drop, and spraying water from Noah's animals complete this fun facility.

Swim Diaper Policy

All children who are not potty trained must wear a swim diaper. Regular diapers may burst or leak. Feces in pool water spread a host of infectious diseases. One child could contaminate thousands of gallons of water. Anyone who has diarrhea within the past two weeks should stay out of the water. If a child defecates in the water, please notify a lifeguard or pool manager. Changing tables are located in both the men's and women's locker rooms. Please do not use pool side tables for changing diapers.

Rain Check Policy

The pool will close for 15 minutes when lightning and/or thunder is in the area. Rain checks will only be distributed if the pool is closed for 75 consecutive minutes. Rain checks will not be issued after 2:00 PM. Rain checks must be used this season.
