We visited on one of the hottest days of the year in Phoenix. We were very pleased with the cleanliness of the facility and the quality of the amenities. The splash pad and pool area is well maintained there were plenty of lifeguards to keep an eye on the little ones.

Now I can safely give these guys 5 stars, since they have recovered some of their former glory. They have added table tennis lessons once a week by a pro w/ball machine shooting out balls at preset speeds/spins and depth. In addition they've added Pickleball indoors several days/week. It's a sport that's exploding in popularity and growing exponentially. They even... More

I've been using this facility for years, and am always impressed with the cheerful and helpful staff. The facility is always clean, too. I usually use the indoor walking/running track, but have also enjoyed the workout room, outdoor lap pool and some aerobic classes. This is a local gem, and I'm thrilled it's just down the street from my home.

The facilities here are amazing, people are friendly, and it's a good value. The only problem is that I wish the parents would watch their children better so that the employees don't have to worry about the children's safety .

This facility has something for everyone from cake decorating , fitness to rock climbing! The only negative I see is not having discounted rates for Seniors wanting to take some of the classes.

For your summer buck...it doesn't get any better than this pool. Always a hit with kids and adults. I could float in the river all day!

We only visited the aquatics center since we were visiting from out of town. We went during the public swim time from 1-5 pm. Arrive about 15-20 min early to get in line. Lots of "rules" but helps keep it to be a nice place! And, the water is COLD, even in the AZ heat! I would recommend to anyone... More

We used this establishment a lot until recently and still continue to go there. It's a great value for families and individuals and could account for significant time spent during the hot summers. They offer a lot of structured activities as well as others you can engage in on your own. Whatever draws you to it is time well spent... More
