Take time to enjoy the Aquatic Center at the Bernikow JCC as you swim the beautiful Olympic size indoor pool overlooking the Green Belt and relax in the steam room, sauna and whirlpool. Plus, complimentary towel service and grooming stations will enhance your aquatic activities. We’ve thought of everything so you don’t have to! All aquatic classes & programs for children and adults are held in the JCC’s Bernikow building.
