Something for Everyone

West Mesa Aquatic Center is the site of the City's newest Olympic pool.

This is an excellent pool for lap swimming, recreational swimming, exercise classes, swim meets — stadium seating to accommodate 800 spectators — and other activities.

Olympic Features

The pool can be set for eight 50-meter lanes or two-dozen 25-yard lanes.

The pool also has two 1-meter diving boards and a 3-meter diving board.

Indoor & Outdoor Slide Pools

The West Mesa Aquatic Center also features an indoor recreation pool that has a tower water slide with beach-like zero-slope design. It is handicap accessible and great for birthday parties.

The outdoor pool is larger than the indoor pool and has two water slides.


Children younger than 10 must be accompanied by a responsible adult. Children ages 8 and under must be supervised by an adult at all times while in the water. Therefore, they both need to be in the water.
