The 22,300-square-foot aquatic center includes a zero-depth-entry leisure pool with play features and water slide. The leisure pool reaches a maximum depth of 3 feet, 6 inches. The aquatic center also has a four-lane lap pool, which will be available for lap swim, water aerobics, open swim and swimming lessons.
Additional indoor aquatic center amenities include a sauna, whirlpool and men’s, women’s and family changing rooms. Pool murals were created by local artist Greg Preslicka.

Indoor Tot Time
Infants and toddlers can play in the zero-entry pool before the center opens to the public. The slides and play features are closed, so this is a good time to bring kids who want a calmer pool experience. Pool toys will be available; non-inflatable, clean pool toys can also be brought.
A lifeguard will be on duty. Adult supervision is required and adults must be in the water with their children. Each session requires participants to exit the facilities before regular hours. Only U.S. Coast Guard-approved life jackets may be worn. No other flotation decides allowed.
WHEN: 9:30 -11:30 a.m. Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays
Check our weekly schedule for possible changes due to swim lessons. In the event of inclement weather and lessons having to be moved indoors on weekday mornings, Tot Time will be canceled. Call the front desk at 952-233-9500 for updates.
COST: $5/child or free with Community Center membership; Free for parents
