In response to St. Louis County guidelines for reopening Public Water Recreation Facilities (PWRF), the City is still making changes to the Aquatic Center operation plan for the 2021 Summer Season. The Crestwood Aquatic Center will open on May 29, 2021.
Managing Crowd Size
To manage crowd size and maintain a safe environment, we will not allow any new non-resident memberships. Only current passholders, Crestwood residents, residents of the Lindbergh School District, and non-residents with a preexisting pass can purchase memberships. The following groups will be allowed to pay daily entrance fees with a valid ID card: Crestwood residents, Lindbergh residents who have previously purchased an ID card, and non-residents who have previously purchased an ID card. All expired ID cards must be renewed before you can purchase a daily entrance pass. Please read the operation plan for details.
Memberships can be purchased at anytime during the year. All passes are good for 365 days. The Parks and Recreation Department switched to a new computer program in 2020. Expect longer than normal pass renewal times, if you did not have a pass during the 2020 season.
