Heated, Olympic sized 50 meter swimming pool with ten, seven and five meter diving platforms as well as three and one meter spring boards. Curly slides for the ride of your life or the new speed slides shoot you down at over 35 miles per hour. Lots of grass space for picnicking or you can purchase food at the on-site grill. Outdoor pool is open the summer months only. the Indoor Aquatic Center is open all year with a poolside climbing wall, springboards and basketball hoops. Heated floors throughout the dressing rooms provide warmth and comfort for all swimmers. Coming in winter of 2013 is an indoor kiddie play area with all the fun a zero depth splash and play area can provide. Year round fun coupled with access to the World Famous Hot Pools make this a must see and do destination.

The pools are all warm and lightly chlorinated. But didn't burn the eyes at all. Very well maintained. Lot's of lifeguards. Thrill seeking fun from the 10meter platform. Decent diving boards. A few fun slides. Lot's of open lawn space for lounging. Indoor kids water zone. Generally awesome.

We spent an hour at this pool after a long drive through Idaho. Multiple large pools, multiple diving boards, and hot tub means there is plenty to do. The only negative is a big one for me though. The pool water was mostly clean but the showers and pool drains all looked like they were growing small animals because of... More

Dear N. Carolina Girl, Thanks for letting us know about your experience here at the Olympic Swimming Complex. You are correct, it was the end of a very busy holiday weekend but, that is no excuse. We will address with staff that when the floors are squeege'd throughout the day to remember to pick up the stuff that is left... More

Huge, olympic sized pool with 5, 7 and 10 meter platforms (that top one will scare even the most brave). Several long and fast water slides. A large indoor pool and big splash-pad area for younger children. Very reasonably priced. If you go to the Lava Hot Pools first, you can get a discounted price for both activities.

Nice big pool. Some nice water slides. I'm not a big pool person, but this was perfect for the kids to have some fun after a lot of traveling. There are an assortment of water slides for all comfort levels for thrills. The pool is huge and nice and clean. There is an indoor area best suited for the toddler/preschool... More

This place was great... swimming pools (indoor/outdoor), water slides, diving boards, and a heated indoor area for small kids inside with slides and water features. There's plenty of grassy areas and space to bring your chairs and food and setup for the day.

Complex has several attractions for the whole family. If you are coming on Saturday during summer, arrive early and bring your own chair, it gets very, very, crowded.

We've got 5 kids 6 years old and under. They had a lot of fun playing in the kiddie area and in the "big pool outside". I had fun building up the courage to jump off the diving platforms. There's shade if you get there early. Lots of grass to throw your towel or blanket down on. This was a... More

What a fun place to take your family! We always enjoy the swimming pool. My siblings love the diving boards and the slides and my nieces and nephews love the kid area. It's fun for all ages. Just don't forget your sunscreen!!
