Identification System

For the safety of all our patrons, you must present a Manheim Township issued photo identification card (ID) for admission to either pool facility. This includes both residents and no-resident daily admission patrons, as well as season pass holders.

The ID cards can be used for admission to either pool and are free with the purchase of your Season Pass.

Photo IDs are issued at each pool facility and the Stauffer Mansion. Save time and avoid waiting at the pool by getting your ID cards at Stauffer Mansion before the pools open.
