Outdoor Aquatic Center, pool

727 Kentucky St.
(785) 832-7990

The Lawrence Outdoor Aquatic Center provides the good old-fashioned atmosphere of a traditional neighborhood pool with all the fun and excitement of a first-class water park.

After a major renovation in 1995, the Outdoor Aquatic Center now boosts two water slides, zero-depth children’s area, diving well, interactive play features including fountains, spray mushrooms, and water buckets, and a 50-meter competition area. The fun and convenience extend out of the water as well, with shaded lounge areas, ample deck space, adjoining grass playground, and a full-line café style concessions area.

The Outdoor Aquatic Center is also host to numerous aquatic camps and swimming lesson programs.
