George J. Barco Aquatic Center
Our aquatic center offers year-round swimming opportunities for all ages. In the summer, play in our outdoor area that includes a water slide and zero depth entry wading pool as well as our full size indoor pool. In the winter, swim laps before work in our heated 25x25 pool or take an Aqua Aerobics class. We also offer year-round public and private swim lessons through our trained aquatics staff and lifeguards. Our aquatic center includes a diving board, six swimming lanes, basketball hoops, locker rooms, and a concession stand.
The MARC is proud to announce that we now provide Silver Sneakers membership to the Barco Aquatic Center, George S. DeArment Ice Arena, tennis courts, and Community Garden activities.
