Aquatic Center

The Aquatic Center is a $4 million water recreational complex that everyone in the family can enjoy. The younger children can safely play in the wading pool with a Water Tree for them to enjoy while older children can splash around the Olympic size pool. Teenagers have a great time hanging out with friends and enjoying the two 4-story high water slides with 320 feet of incredible turns and diving wells with a 1 and 3-meter board. For parents and sunbathers relaxing is not a problem with the 200 available chaise lounges and more than 8 lifeguards keeping the complex safe.

This regional attraction draws more than 40,000 visitors annually and provides numerous water programs and events during the 12-week season. The pool, slide or both can be rented for an exciting birthday party or other special occasion. Everyone can have a fun time at this water recreational facility located at 670 Whitelaw Avenue from Memorial weekend until the start of school.
