INDOOR POOLS

The Mankato Family YMCA has two indoor swimming pools – a 4-lane Lap Pool and the Taylor Family Aquatic Center with a water slide, walk in access, basketball hoops and splash pad. Certified and trained lifeguards are stationed at each section of the pools at all times.

Swimming is a part of life in the land of 10,000 lakes. The Y provides a safe environment for swimmers of all ages and abilities to learn a lifelong skill, develop water safety skills, discover the health benefits of swimming and build confidence. For the safety of all of our guests, the YMCA has developed rules and guidelines for use of our facilities. Please follow these rules so that everyone may have an enjoyable time at the Y!
