Turttle® Pool

Our Turttle® Pool is one of only ten in the world and provides a soothing workout in its currented lap ring and arthritis relief in the inner heated waters. Our Turttle® Pool features two parts- an interior rectangular warm water (91-94°) and an exterior oval track of cooler (84-88°) water. A current, up to 4 mph, is constantly being pumped into the oval track facilitating water walking with or against the current. The slightly deeper interior pool is filled with warmer water and is utilized in therapy and exercise. Our pool area also features a relaxing spa (104°). Air horns are located throughout the pool area if you require immediate assistance. All pool users are required to wear water shoes.
