George J. Barco Aquatic Center
Our aquatic center offers year-round swimming opportunities for all ages. In the summer, play in our outdoor water playground that includes a water slide, a water dumping pelican, zero depth entry, water geysers, and a wading pool. Or, sign your little one up for a learn to swim class. In the winter, swim laps before work in our heated 25x25 meter pool or take an aquatic fitness class.
Our aquatic center includes lifeguards, a diving board, six swimming lanes, basketball hoops, locker rooms, and a concession stand.
