Welcome to the Irwin A. and Robert D. Goodman Aquatic Center! Nearly 10,000 swimmers each year enjoy the beautiful 5,500 square-foot outdoor pool, located at the Irwin A. and Robert D. Goodman Jewish Community Campus in Verona.
POOL CLOSINGS:Check the GAC Facebook page for weather or unexpected closings before heading to the pool. The pool does not open when the air temperature is below 68 degrees.
UPDATE 8/5: Changes Starting August 14 See updates starting August 14 - August 31 regarding changes to the schedule, registration for open swim and lap swim, and bringing guests.
Registration is now open online to purchase family and individual memberships and schedule June open swim and lap swim sessions. Things will look different at the pool this year due to COVID safety precautions and may change as the situation and recommendations change. Memberships are required to attend the pool this summer. Day passes will not be available. You will also need to pre-register for the days and times you’ll be at the pool. Members will be able to sign up online for hour lap swim and two and a half-hour open swim blocks of time throughout the summer. At this time, there will be no pool deck chairs. We are encouraging members to come in suits, ready to swim, to minimize locker room use, and maximize time at the pool. See 2021 Policies for additional updated information and details.

Pool Parties & Rentals 2021: Unfortunately, this summer there will be no pool parties during hours of operation or rentals for private events at any time.
The pool’s six 25-meter lanes make it great for lap-swimming, and its zero-depth entry make it accessible to everyone. When you’re out of the water, the pool’s shaded area and deck chairs (not available in summer 2021) offer a great place to lounge with friends and family, while enjoying a variety of delicious concessions available daily.
Our pool has a salt-water generator, making the pool better for the environment and for swimmers. This generator allows us to use salt, a natural element found in the earth, as a sanitizing agent, instead of relying on large amounts of liquid chlorine. The Goodman Aquatic Center is now home to large solar panels, which help to heat the pool water.
The Goodman Aquatic Center, which is located at 7762 County Highway PD, just 15 minutes from downtown Madison, is open with weekday and weekend hours by membership and registration only for summer 2021. Day passes will not be available. See Summer 2021 Schedule >
