Pool users new to the facility must show photo ID and sign in at the front desk on the provided sign-in sheet.*

Returning users must check in by providing their city of residence.  This includes all who enter the building regardless of entry into the water.  This information will provide the Des Moines Pool Metropolitan Park District demographic information about out pool users which may be useful for future pool funding.
