Gateway Aquatic Center

Turn an ordinary day into an extraordinary adventure. The Gateway Aquatic Center has something for everyone. The competition pool is maintained at 80 degrees and available for lap swim through out the day. The recreational pool is maintained at around 87 degrees with a play feature for younger swimmers with a double slide, water shooting cannons, sprays, and water falls. Try out one of our water slides. The drop slide is a 38 foot enclosed slide that exits 4 feet above the water into the competition pool or twist and turn down 113 feet til you splash into the recreational pool on our twisty slide. Relax in our nice warm sauna or jog in our vortex. Water fun for everyone.

Riders must be at least 48 inches to use the slides.
