The aquatic facility has an 8-lane (25 yard) lap pool, a dive well with 4 diving boards (2) 1-meter and (2) 3-meter, 1 large tube water slide, 600' lazy river, beach-like zero-depth entry into a large play pool with water play features, and an interactive spray pad.  There is turfed area with barbeque and shaded areas, veranda seating with a view of the pool area, party island with seating at the lazy river, and a Public Art Component.


The fitness center has machine weights, dumbbells, and cardiovascular machines.  A variety of fitness, aerobic and leisure education classes as well as nutritional and wellness classes are offered.

The Skate Park is 16,000 square feet and open to all skateboarders and inline skaters.   There are street-like components such as tables, benches, planters and ledges.  Additionally, the skate park has a deep bowl at its deepest area.   Bikes including BMX bikes are not permitted in the Skate Park; this is to preserve the safety of all patrons and the structural integrity of the facility.  For more information, please see Frequently Asked Questions.
