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.

“Great to stay cool”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2014

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.

“Most fun thing to do with family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

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”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2014

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 4 1/2 feet deep, a diving board area, and lap lanes.

Quite crowded on Memorial Day weekend when it was super hot, but overall a good value for a few hours of entertainment.

“So totally beats Knotts Soak City in every way”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

Forget the high prices at the Palm Springs Water Attractions. This gem is a fraction of the cost and kids LOVE it. Free parking- as compared to $10.00 per car in Palm Springs. Childrens fee under three dollars!!!!!!!!!
