How do I make a reservation at the pool?

  • Submit an online request to reserve a party option at the Gardner Aquatic Center. (This option does not block off your reservation, it is a request and provides a way to sign off on the facility waiver. Staff must check to see if the option/date/time is available and all fees have been paid in order for permit to be issued.)
  • Book your reservation in person at Gardner City Hall Mon-Fri 8-5.
  • Call us at 913-856-0936 with any questions about party options, dates, amenities, etc.! Reservations must either be made in person or via the online form, above, or via the reservation form as we cannot accept reservations over the phone.

Are there different options/days of the week that I can rent the pool or party shelter?

  • The Gardner Aquatic Center offers four different options that include the Party Shelter, the Lap Lane Pool and the Splash Play Area.
