ARCO Olympic Training Center

This was one of the most enlightening tours I've ever been on. Our volunteer tour guide was a wealth of information. He escorted us around the training center by golf cart. We stopped at each event center and he explained what went on at each site and what improvements were being made to accommodate more sports. We were ably to... More

I like to bike to the Olympic training center but to be honest there is not much to see. They have a nice center but it is really for the athletes and not for visitors.

Really a neat place. The facilities are top notch, and you can go on a guided or self-guided (cellphone) tour. There's a BMX hall of fame in the main building, and a small museum that will bring back memories for anyone who was into BMX in the 70's.

We read about this Olympic training center and we thought we might go there. It was great. There were maps guiding you on a self guided tour. You get to see Olympians practice. It was cool for all ages. Go to ARCO Olympic Training Center.

If you like sports then this place is a great stop if you are in the area. Seeing the facilities where our athletes train is great. A beautiful lake backs the property and the grounds include areas where athletes train in sports ranging from Archery and BMX to Tennis and volleyball.

My grandson and I visited Olympic Training Center. We walked around and saw the BMX course, some of the other attractions and visited the Gift Shop. My grandson was able to get an olympic logo cap a pen and a journal. He was thrilled by the items. It was a hot day, therefore we took water and limited our walking... More

The mountains to the east and Lake Otay (there are actually two) form a nice backdrop, especially when the weather is nice (which is most of the time and a major reason why this site was selected as an outdoor, year around training venue for aspiring Olympic athletes). This is a large site (150 acres) but only partially developed, 25... More

Interesting place to visit. Grab a free map and take the self-guided audio tour using your cell phone. Although you can't get close to some of the venues, you can see the BMX course, the Athlete's Village, and the Archery Range, among others. You may see some Olympians in training (we saw some of the cyclists while we were there).... More
