North Whidbey Valued Patrons and Community Members:


Due to the unique circumstances we are facing globally with COVID-19 Coronavirus, the North Whidbey Pool, Park, and Recreation District Board of Commissioners have made the extremely difficult decision to close all District facilities effective Sunday, March 15, 2020. This will be until further notice. Facilities include John Vanderzicht Memorial Pool, Clover Valley Off-Leash Dog Park and Baseball Fields.

Membership holders will receive an extension on their membership equal to the length of the closure. 

We plan to restart swim school with the current class enrollments resuming when we are able to reopen. You will receive six full lessons at that time. 

We will continue to communicate with you via Facebook, our website, and direct email. 

If you need assistance, please feel free to reach out. We will monitor our voicemail daily. 

You may also direct email inquiries to:

We look forward to welcoming you back to our facilities as soon as possible!
