Base Pools

Davis-Monthan is home to two fabulous pools: an indoor lap pool and an outdoor leisure pool. Both pools are manged by Outdoor Rec, although the indoor pool is located within the Benko Fitness Center and the outdoor pool is its own stand-alone structure near base housing. Lap swimming reservations for the indoor pool can be made in advance.
