Aquatic Center

The Farmington Aquatic Center is 24 years old and some of the aging infrastructure is beginning to need repair and, in some cases, replaced.  The elements of the Leisure Pool (slide and playground) are nearing their life cycle and are beginning to show signs of deterioration.  In an abundance of caution, and the continued safety of the public, the department had chosen to decommission these elements.  The Aquatic Center staff is taking the fall and winter months to research and assess the options of replacing the structures with different and new play features.


The Farmington Aquatic Center provides indoor water recreation for the whole family, year round. The options are endless:
  • 50 meter Olympic-size pool with high and low diving boards
  • 150 foot water slide
  • Leisure / playground pool

Programs


There are also an assortment of programs such as:
  • Public swimming
  • Lessons
  • Aquacise
  • Lap swimming
  • Leisure pool exercise
