The Aquatics Center features two pools: the Competition Pool and the Leisure Pool. Each pool hosts a large array of special features and program opportunities.

The Competition Pool is a 25-yard, 8-lane pool that features a climbing wall, diving board, water polo goals, ADA lift and basketball goals. This pool will be able to host large swimming competitions with the help of the 250-seat observation deck. The Competition Pool will also provide space for the River Center School of Swim, youth swim meets and pool parties.

The Leisure Pool features two lap lanes, a Vortex pool, guest seating area, ADA lift, ADA ramp, and a child's play area that includes an umbrella water play feature, kids' play structure slides and more. The Leisure Pool area will be anchored by a two-story water slide that will take patrons outside the building before winding the way back into the natatorium. This pool will also be the ideal area for fun and play while also serving our swim lessons, pool parties and water aerobics programming.
