“wonderful facility”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

Part of the reason I chose Fort Bragg for my husband's birthday surprise trip this year was the buzz we'd heard about this wonderful facility, and we were not disappointed. The price for non-locals is a little high at $11 for a day pass, esp since towels are not provided. But the lap pool was wonderful, crystal clear and uncrowded, and the locker room was spacious and nicely appointed.

“Good to have it back”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

the Starr Aquatic Center is still the biggest, best place to get wet indoors for at least 100 miles. Truly enjoy the lazy river and just watching people have fun.

Terrific aquatic center (especially for kids) is worth the visit. Workout room & classes round out the experience.

“Wonderful new Aquatic Center”
Reviewed March 18, 2012

This is a world class swim center with three indoor heated pools. The reason I gave it four stars is the pools are a little too cold for me. The big lap pool is heated to 78 degrees and 82-83 would be much easier to stay in and swim laps for an hour. The smaller play pool is warmer but can be full of kids playing making laps hard during open swims. If you are from out of town the price is about 6 dollars and locals swim for less.
Clean changing rooms. Large rooms with weights and machines like a regular health club. Out front there is a place for dogs to run free and chase balls etc. Overall a first class Center. Good job Fort Bragg and hope you can afford to keep it open for years to come.

“Don't forget to pack your swimsuit!”
Reviewed June 15, 2011

We saw their ad in a local paper, and decided to check it out. We brought our suits anyway (don't know why - the ocean is freezing!). Who would expect such a stellar recreational facility on the north coast of California? Those folks on the Mendocino coast have been raising money for years and not too long ago, opened this indoor recreational facility for the public to enjoy. It's too cold to swim in the ocean, so go for a swim at the Aquatic Center. There's 2 fun slides for the kids, a water feature, and swim lanes! There's also exercise and dance rooms. Everything is spotless and brand new! Thank you Mendo Coast Rec & Park District and City of Ft. Bragg.
