Parties at Larkey
Larkey is a great place to host a party or an event — children’s birthday parties, end-of-season baseball and soccer parties or end-of-year school parties. A perfect spot for your next gathering, the Larkey Private Swim Club can accommodate both semi-private and private parties for up to 100 guests.
If you have questions or inquiries about hosting a party, please reach out to the Larkey Pool Manager, Amy Mason, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
NOTE: As of February 2023, Larkey is in the process of building up our summer staff of lifeguards, and extra lifeguards must be available to support the safety of parties and events. The majority of our lifeguards are high school and college students. At this point, we cannot commit to being able to host a party or event during school hours on weekdays until the school year comes to a close in early June. This situation may change as our staffing roster comes together, and we will update this page when it does.
