The Merriam Aquatic Center is close to home, fits your budget, and is healthy, family fun for all ages!

Small Children

Our zero depth (beach entry) pool is a special place for your little thrill seekers, with a small dolphin slide for toddlers, and an “old man and the sea” themed slide for older children (maximum height for riders is 48-inches). Pulsating water jets, three water features (Ollie Octopus, Seabiscuit Seahorse, Freddy Frog), and a floating lobster add to the fun. A dolphin fountain spray in the center of the pool is sure to cool you off! A shade awning is provided over part of the pool to protect you from the sun.

Older Children, Teenagers, Adults & the Young at Heart

We offer two exciting water slides. A 150-foot open flume slide and 135-foot enclosed tube slide will twist and turn you down an exciting ride, then splash you into the cool pool below. The pool is 4-feet deep and guarded by our experienced lifeguards. All riders must be 48" tall in order to ride the waterslide.

Lap Swimmers & Divers

You will love our beautiful 50-meter pool, equipped with two 1-meter diving boards and one 3-meter diving board. A 25-meter lap lane is available during all operating hours.

Break Time

We provide two concession patios to seat you comfortably. Our concession stand offers a full variety of reasonably priced snacks from pizza to ice cream. There are four permanent shade structures to protect you from the sun.
