Place of Interest No. 2: Frances Meadow Aquatic Center
This is a state-of-the-art aquatic and fitness center that has something for everyone who wants to get fit or stay fit in the pool or in a fitness center or just have fun splashing about in one of the pools. There are plenty of activities to choose from and the center also has facilities for group parties.
One of the best things about the Frances Meadows Aquatic Center is that it is open all year round, so you aren't just confined to the summer months. This is especially important if your kid or kids are serious about their performance in the pool as constant and regular training is essential.
The center has a range of facilities to cater for different levels of experience. There is a 10 lane indoor competition pool for those who have taken up serious competitive swimming as well as a 4 lane indoor instructional pool for those kids who are just getting into swimming and need some expert tuition. For the warmer months, there is an outdoor water park with all sorts of aquatic activities. There are water based and land based fitness classes available for all age groups.
The outdoor aquatic center has water slides, a swirl pool, drop buckets, a current channel and other fun activities as well as plenty of pool side patio and deck space with chairs. This makes for a great day out in the warmer months as you can relax by the poolside while you keep an eye on your kids enjoying themselves in the water.
The Aquatic center also has facilities for larger groups called splash parties, especially for those who want to combine some sport of festivity or party with an aquatic theme. The options cater for groups of 10 or more. These options usually combine a period in the pool together with party time with food and other party items provided by the center. This is a great choice for families if they want to have one of their kid’s birthday parties here at the aquatic center.
The party options include a special arrangement for smaller kids called the Minnie’s Mini Minnow Package. This option allows time in either the warm water pool or the splash pool, depending on the season as well as a variety of food and drink and plastic ware to go with it as well as invitations. This option costs $10 per child with 10 as a minimum size.
The options for bigger kids depend on exactly how much food they want to eat. The options all include time in the pools as well as pizza and drinks. The more expensive option includes more to eat and drink as well as cake, toys, decorations and photos.
The aquatic center now has a new fitness center which opened at the end of 2013. This has a full range of equipment which can be used by individuals as well as for fitness classes. The equipment includes treadmills, ascent and elliptical trainers, climb mills and recumbent and upright bikes as well as a full range of cardio workout equipment.
