For a great way to cool off, enjoy the Surprise aquatic center. Sadly, I visited on the 4th of July and it was packed. Water was great and even got to see a belly flop competition. I would recommend, but not on holiday weekends.

but my friend, who lives there, said that it is a very nice facility. The area around it is quite appealing.

This is not a zoo, it's a large community swimming pool with two water slides, water play area, swim lanes, and diving boards. Could use a little more shade, but that's okay. Great for kids, very well staffed and managed.

This place is great.. And all we have used is the pool. We visited on a 108 degree day and the sections of the pool were awesome for the kids and parents alike. There is a good amount of shade, water slides, and lap pool...More

Need to upgrade the lake near the Aquatic Center. Need to add and indoor pool or a heat pump. Need more shade so parent can seat and watch their kids. Surprise needs is a indoor/outdoor waterpark for the kids in the summer.

Took my kids here, it was a bit chaotic. There is no control. The staff really depends on the parents to help with thier children. Seemed a bit Understaffed for my liking. But it was clean.

When Surprise was being built, there was the stadium skeleton and the aquatic center. The slide is so fun, you'd think it was a place that you had to pay $35 to get in to. There are kid pools and water features for little ones...More
