The Natatorium

The Natatorium

The Friendship Center Natatorium includes warm-water pools and a giant water slide, making it a truly unique facility.

Fall 2017 Pool Schedule

Leisure Pool

The 100 foot long yellow slide plunges riders down a spiral flum to the splash below. It is a journey that is taken by young and old alike. The slide is the focal point of the "water park" area in the natatorium. In addition to the giant slide, users enjoy the adjacent zero depth entry pool, which slopes gradually to a depth of 3.5 feet and features spray fountains for water play.  Connected to the leisure pool is a large therapy pool, to be used for learn-to-swim, water aerobics and therapeutic activities. Water temperatures in these two pools are 86 degrees Fahrenheit. This area of the natatorium also contains a large whirlpool spa, with a water temperature of approximately 102 degrees.

          

Lap Pool

Flanking the pools in the "water park" area is a six-lane competition pool ranging in depth from 4 to 5 feet at a temperature of 82 degrees. This pool features starting blocks at the deep end and bleacher seating on the east side of the natatorium. A doorway on the west side of the natatorium opens onto a spacious sundeck, complete with patio furniture. Certified lifeguards staff the Natatorium at all times. Directly off the natatorium are the men's, women's, and family locker rooms. The natatorium is available for rentals.
