I took my kids here for a little diversion from the Hotel. It's your standard public Park-like aqua center. The day were there, it was a lot of Campers (end of August.) When they left, it was deserted. But, its a very cheap, nice way to cool off and just hang. My kids were not that impressed. And preferred the... More

A super clean and central way to cool off during the summer and keep active during the season. From the water slide(s) for children to the Olympic lanes for the more athletic...surely a great idea from the City. Thanks!!

We had an awful hotel check in experience at a local hotel. We had no room for hours. We were headed to another local water park when a local recommended the Aquatic Center. We are so glad they did! For myself and two 9 year olds the admission price was $15! (I paid an $1 additional locker, that we didn't... More

A very well kept outdoor aquatic area, suitable for families. Limited shaded areas but the life guards are attentive and a 50 yd pool from 0530 to 0755 is great. They turn it into a 25 for the rest of the day. The other pools are good and they do have facilities for disability.

Instead of paying over $170 to get into Wet n Wild water park in Palm Springs and $14 to park the car, we decided to try out this facility instead and drove there for free parking and only $27 entrance fee for myself my wife and 3 children. When we entered it was an amazing sight, with a full sized... More

A great place to see fireworks on the 4th of July. One of those hidden gem places to see fireworks and there are a lot of places to eat and have a great time

a true gem in the desert, staff and facility top notch! The water classes are terrific, lap swimming and fun for children. A perfect addition to the city of Palm Desert.

We discovered the aquatic center while looking for something to break up the drive back to Phoenix. Our toddler loved the wading pool and splash pad. The wife and I HAD to go down the big slide! What fun that was.

The most fun for kids and adults and easy on the pocket book. Only $4 to get in and the diving boards, water slides, and the deep pool got us hooked. I highly recommend it. Employees are very nice and lots of life guards on duty. Clean showers and $1 snow cones were great.

Good for families, especially with kids under age 8. It's not worth it to pay a hefty price for Wet n Wild Water Park for small children. The Aquatic Center had a wading pool, a kids' water play structure with a couple of small slides, two tube type slides for those over 48 inches tall, a pool that was about... More
