Due to COVID-19, we are not currently accepting reservations for pool rentals or parties. Changes to availability for rentals and parties will be communicated on our COVID-19 Updates page, social media, and emails to members.
Oak Park Swim Club would love to host your next pool party! Not only do we have a beautiful pool, we have a covered shelter, a grill, and deck games too. You are welcome to bring your own food or have food delivered. Our party packages offer you exclusive use of the shelter and grill, however you can move the party to the sun and lawn chairs if you prefer.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
How much are party rentals?

Can I schedule an event after hours?
No. We are unavailable to accommodate after hours events at our facility.
Can I schedule an event that lasts longer than 2 hours?
Yes, the prices listed are for 1-hour rentals, but additional hours may be booked at the rates described under the list of prices. Parties must be booked for a minimum of 2-hours.
Is a certain day available?
The most up to date information is on our calendar at http://www.oakparkpool.com/Calendar.
If you scroll through to the date you want, and there are no other events during that date and time, then we are available to host your event. The exceptions to this are major holidays such as Memorial Day, Labor Day, 4th of July and all Tuesdays that Oak Park is hosting a swim meet. Please email email@example.com if you have any questions whether a certain date is available.
How do I reserve my space?
It is requested parties are reserved at least 2 weeks prior to the party date. Please fill out the web form found on our page and a pool volunteer will respond back to your inquiry within 48-hours. When looking to book an event, please use the web form. We kindly request not to call the pool with any questions as the pool's direct number is staffed by the lifeguards who can not assist in reserving a party date.
We require a non-refundable deposit of ½ the price of the event and the liability waivers signed by the day of the event.
What is your inclement weather policy?
While we will make every effort to work with you in the event of inclement weather, we do not guarantee that we are able to do so. Deposits are non-refundable. If there is potential for inclement weather, please Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to see what, if anything, can be done.
Do you host private parties?
No. We never close the pool to our members.
Do you rent to non-members?
Yes. There is a $25/ $50 fee for non-member child parties to rent the pool for an event depending on the day.
Can we bring/order food?
Yes. We do not have a kitchen facility but you are welcome to bring your own food to grill (we do provide a grill) or have food delivered. Delivery address: 4425 Oak Park Rd, Raleigh, NC 27612
Can we have a DJ?
No. Due to the surrounding homes and family atmosphere at our pool we do not allow professional speaker systems. Small bluetooth speakers, or other portable music players to use during an event are certainly allowed.
How many guests can come?
We are able to host up to 50 guests at one time. Please email email@example.com if you are interested in hosting an event for greater than 50 guests.
Are there lifeguards?
Yes. The price of the event includes Red Cross certified lifeguards for 50 minutes every hour.
Child party information
A “Child Party” is a party in which the guest of honor and most of the attendees are under the age of 16 years old. Oak Park Pool members and non-members alike may rent the pool for a children's party.
Our prices are listed per swimmer. For example, if you want to schedule a child's party for 10 kids, but then have 10 parents in the water as well, you would need to book a party for 20 people. Non-swimming caregivers are not counted toward party attendants for child parties.
Please be advised that we reserve the right to ask any swimmer to perform a swim test if their swimming ability is questionable. A swim test may include swimming across the deep end unaided without stopping, and/ or treading water for 30 seconds. Non-swimmers must stay within the shallow end behind the lane rope. We book events for the number of swimmers so that we can schedule and insure enough lifeguard coverage for your event.
