Adult Swim


Get in the water!

Swimming is a beautifully meditative form of exercise — easy on the joints, critical to mindful motion, and a serious calorie burner — but you don't have to swim solo. The Riverdale Y!'s pool has a full schedule of swimming opportunities for adults, we're sure you'll make the most of your membership and join us in the water soon!

Dedicated Lap Swim & Open Swim

The Riverdale Y! Pool is bustling with activities from open to close, but we respect the commitment of our morning swimmers. This is why we have dedicated lap swim hours every weekday morning from 5:30am to 8:00am. One or 2 lanes are open through the day except between 4:00pm-5:45pm Monday-Thursday and 11:00am-1:30pm on Sundays. Click here for our complete swim schedule.

Gender-Specific Swim Time

We respect the codes of modesty that many of our members observe, and we open men's-only and women's-only swim times several days a week. Members may enter the pool deck through several access points, but on the main pool level, access is via separate locker rooms. Click here for our complete swim schedule.
