Aquatic Center

The Aquatic Center is CLOSED for the season.  We will reopen on June 7, 2014.

The City of Albert Lea’s Aquatic Center features a zero depth splash pool with interactive play features for children including tumble buckets, deck sprays, a mushroom waterfall, bubblers, and a five arm water fountain. And best of all – don’t miss the 226 foot water slide!!! For our patron’s comfort, there are several large, colorful shade structures so that you can get out of the sun while you watch the kids play, or take a break from your trips down the slide. A family bath house is located adjacent to the feature pool The newly renovated main pool ranges in depth from 3 and a half feet to 13 feet and has two one meter diving boards.

The pool is also handicap accessible. All these features and a highly trained, helpful staff makes the Albert Lea Family Aquatic Center one of the best aquatic facilities in the Southern Minnesota area and a great place to spend those hot days of summer!! Swimming lessons and special events are also offered at the Aquatic Center throughout the summer. Please take a look at the Parks and Recreation Department’s Summer Brochure for a listing of activities, or call the Parks and Recreation Office at 377-4370 for more information on pool programs or email Jenny Davis, jdavis@city.albertlea.org
