Aquatics

The MSMC Aquatic Center is a brand-new facility built in 2019/2020 and features a zero-depth entry with water sprays and dumping buckets going into a depth of 5 feet. We also have a large vortex slide on deck along with six large shade structures and lounge chairs. Being zero entry and ADA lift it can be enjoyed by all. For our young swimmers, we offer a splash pad with dualling water cannons, dumping buckets and assorted spray features. Restrooms, lockers and affordable concessions are all located on site. Breaks are called every hour at 15 minutes to the hour for bathroom breaks. Adults are permitted to swim during these times while children rest.
