DOAC slide
  • The Dorothy Olson Aquatic Center has closed for the season. We look forward to seeing you the summer of 2018!

  • The Dorothy A. Olson Aquatic Center 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. 

    Safety breaks are 15 minutes long and are taken at 1:30pm, 3:30pm, and 5:30pm. 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.

    Any child under the age of 13 years old must be supervised at all times by a responsible person, 16 years of age or older.
