Thee premier swimming facility of the desert. With Olympic size pool, diving boards, kid pools, splash area, and one additional lap pool situated in the park, (a fantastic park at that). The water is a bit cool during the winter, I have to wear ear plugs during my swim. There are water exercise class, swim teams, and water polo practices.... More

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

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.
