Aquatic Center

"More than just a pool.  It's a community dedicated to safety, education, and great experiences."

2020 Summer Season Update:

After careful evaluation of the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Clive has decided to cancel the Clive Aquatic Center 2020 summer season and Clive Festival. The City Council and staff discussed this possibility at the May 14 Clive City Council meeting.

The Clive Aquatic Center annual season typically starts Memorial Day weekend and closes mid-August.  All previously purchased swimming passes have been refunded as of Tuesday, May 19.  If you were a pass holder and did not receive your refund, please call the Clive Parks and Recreation Offices directly.

The Clive Aquatic Center will be opening for limited programming that whie are modified for safe swimming and skill development under COVID.  Please note the modifications only reflect the 2020 season as this time as we continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and aquatic safe swimming to provide world class safe aquatic standards.  Limited programming, including swim lessons, can be found under our aquatic program page.  Registration for swim lessons now open and the first session will start Monday, July 6th.

“Public health and safety have always been, and always will be, our top priority,” said Clive Leisure Services Director Richard Brown. “We have the responsibility to provide safe experiences for our patrons, volunteers, staff, sponsors, vendors, entertainers, and our entire community. Clive is dedicated to supporting healthy life experiences through quality parks and recreation opportunities and we will continue connecting with our community in new and inventive ways this summer.”

The Clive Festival was scheduled for July 17-18, 2020. While this year’s event has been canceled, the City is still planning to have a fireworks celebration on the evening of Friday, July 17, 2020. More details about the Clive Festival and the fireworks show can be found at

The City looks forward to opening the Aquatic Center fully in summer 2021.
