The Plunge is a 50 by 20 meter outdoor pool. During the school year the bulkhead (center divider) allows for multiple programs. Pool rental for less than 100 people guarantees one side, it is up to staff and availability for your group to use both sides. Groups greater than 100 people may only rent when both sides of the pool are available. During the summer months, the full pool is guaranteed regardless of group size. There is currently no price difference for half or full pool.
Swim attire is required. No t-shirts, shorts, tank tops, leotards, or street clothes are allowed (rash guards are allowed but may not be red). Swim caps are optional. Swimmers must provide their own goggles. The Plunge is not responsible for lost or stolen items. All personal items must be locked into lockers, padlocks are available for rent or you may provide your own. Heated showers are available in locker rooms.
No food, drinks, strollers, or reading materials are permitted on the deck. There is a picnic area outside of the pool that may be used by your group (first-come, first-served) at no additional cost. It is recommended to eat/ open gifts before or after your pool rental time.
The plunge is available for rental on Saturday evening and Sunday morning/ evening. Please call/ e-mail to check hours/ dates of availability. There is a 2 hour minimum for all reservations.

Filming at The Plunge
The hourly filming rate is $350 per hour with a 4 hour minimum. If you do not need 4 hours, or if a 4 hour time block is not available, you will still need to pay for the full 4 hours ($1400). The life guard rate is additional, please see above. Insurance is required, but may not be purchased through Facility Booking. Since the Plunge is a public facility, we will never cancel previously scheduled sanctities for a film permit. No filming may occur during times when a class, program or non-profit rental has a previously scheduled permit.
