With indoor and outdoor pools, swim lessons, and times for family swim and lap swimming, our pools offer ample opportunity for aquatics fitness and fun. We even offer single gender swim options at our Weinberg JCC Park Heights facility.
We encourage everyone to take a swim test, especially if you are new to our pools, to ensure that you have a safe swimming experience. Please review our policy prior to your first visit to our pools.
The Shapiro Outdoor Aquatics Park at our Owings Mills location offers epic fun and fitness options for all ages. Featuring a six-lane 25-meter lap pool, a large family pool with a climbing wall, two baby pools, a huge multi-level splashpad, and an instructional pool – used primarily for swim lessons.

Lap Swimming, Water Aerobics and Deep Water Treading is available in both buildings and shallow water workout space is also available in Park Heights.
Each building is home to a 25-yard indoor lap pool with environmentally advanced filtering technology, which means less chlorine to dry out your skin and hair. This coupled with our new UV disinfection system means cleaner, fresher water for everyone.
If safety is a concern, you can rest assured that you are in great hands with our highly-trained and experienced lifeguard staff.
The Owings Mills pool has six lanes and the Park Heights pool has four lanes. The lane formation changes at different times of day to accommodate everything from lap swimming, to family swim, to swim lessons, aquatics classes, and swim team activities.
Planning your next swim? Remember that our indoor pools open when the JCC opens. They close 30 minutes prior to when the JCC closes.

During select hours, you can swim laps in a lap lane, tread water in the deep end, workout in the shallow end, take a water aerobics class, or play in the pool. Each of these activities are designated on our pool schedule as either lap swimming, water aerobics or general swim. General swim includes treading water in the deep end, shallow water workouts or family swim time. If you have additional questions about these programs please contact firstname.lastname@example.org in Owings Mills or email@example.com in Park Heights. Please review the pool schedules before coming so you can plan your visit.
These activities are available exclusively to members whose accounts are active and financially up to date. Members are allowed to purchase guest passes.
The JCC has limited equipment for general member use, including kickboards, noodles, pull buoys etc. Members should bring any equipment they plan to use, including kickboards, pull buoys, noodles, aqua belts, water weights, lifejackets, goggles, etc. Equipment will be provided for the exclusive use of water aerobics class participants.
Our indoor locker rooms will be available for use as well as water fountains. We recommend you bring a filled water bottle to keep hydrated during your workout. Our indoor restrooms are fitted with no touch toilets, sinks, and soap dispensers. Bathrooms will be continuously sanitized throughout the time the JCC is open and after each session.
The swimming is wonderful, but the J is so much more than swimming. It feels like a true community center.
