If you are a serious swimmer or a casual splasher or a thrilll seeking waterslide afficionado, this is the place for you. The large 50-meter pool is kept at a yaer-round uniform temperature of 81 degrees, which emans they only only heat it in the cooler months, but they cool it in the summertime. The smaller, exercise pool for things... More

Lap swimmers on vacation - this is your heaven. $6 to swim plus locker. Beautiful lap pool. Seems lap lanes are open all day. Swam 2 days in a row and only had to split lane once. It's a bit warm For my taste at 81 degrees.

A great place to swim for all levels, even if the swim teams take up some room in the afternoons. Too bad they don't have better concessions - everything else is very convenient.

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
