What is the Aquatic Center?
The Aquatic Center, located in the Medical Office Building on the Orange City Area Health System Campus, offers you an all-season community wellness opportunity. Enjoy low-impact cardiovascular exercise in a pool where the temperature is always a comfortable 84 degrees. Our two lap pools offer an adjustable current to swim against. Even if you’re not a swimmer, you can benefit from walking against the current or engaging in water exercise for stretching and toning.
The pools feature a saline-based sanitizing system. The sodium chloride solution provides a comfortable swimming environment, minimizing eye and skin irritation and reducing the unpleasant chlorine smell. In addition to user comfort, the new system is safe and sustainable. The low salinity environment — nearly identical to human tears — is produced on site, generating 58% less plastic waste than traditional plastic drum pool sanitizing systems, and requiring 50% less acid than the traditional form of chlorine to maintain optimal water pH levels.
Changing Rooms and Showers
A locker room with shower is conveniently located in the pool area. Patrons should plan on providing their own toiletries and towels.
