Come cool off from the summer heat at the Dorothy A. Olson Aquatic Center! Our facility offers guests a number of entertainment options for people of all ages. There are two raging waterslides. One slide is fully enclosed the entire way down and the other open with both emptying into an attached plunge pool. For the younger guests we have interactive play features and a mini slide all surrounded by a zero depth entry play pool that gets 18 inches deep. People that just want to have some fun in the water have a six lane recreation pool to enjoy ranging from three to five feet deep. Our two one meter diving boards stand over a 10 feet deep diving well.  When it's time for a break swimmers have a choice between getting some sun in our chaise lounges, cooling off in the shade under our 20 foot funbrellas or getting a snack or light meal at our full-service concession stand. Both season passes and day passes ($3) are available.

Swim attire is required for all swimmers, click HERE for a list of clothing. Children under the age of 13 years old must be supervised at all times by a responsible person 16 years of age or older.
