Aquatic Center Policies

The Aquatic Center polices are important to follow to have an enjoyable and safe experience at the Branson AquaPlex. Parents please remember that there is absolutely NO safe substitute for close parental supervision. Our lifeguards are there to enforce pool rules and to respond to emergencies but you are responsible for your children.

Locker Rooms/Family Changing Room

Locker rooms are provided for your convenience, just bring your own lock to use the lockers.  We also have locks available for you to use.  Lockers cannot be left locked overnight. The Branson Parks & Recreation Department is not responsible for lost or stolen belongings. Youth who are 5 years of age or older must use the appropriate locker room. A Family Changing room is available for parents to use as an alternative.

Refund Policy

Refunds will not be issued for season passes after the opening date of the pool.  In the case of pool closure due to weather or lack of occupancy, rain checks will be issued.  No cash refunds will be given. 

Inclement Weather Policy

The pool will be cleared for lightning and/or threatening weather conditions and will be assessed every 20 minutes. Threatening weather conditions lasting longer than 60 minutes may warrant the closing of the pool for that day.  If the pool is closed, a rain check will be provided.  Rain checks are good until the end of the current season. We reserve the right to close the pool due to lack of occupancy. Patrons will be given a 30-minute notice when this policy is administered and rain checks will be provided.
