Aquatic Centers are like mini water parks with amazing play structures and water slides that kids go crazy for! For just a fraction of a large water park’s price, you can have a ton of fun cooling off!

Here are the three local aquatic centers we have in the greater Sacramento area:

The pool features a beach-slope entry and two play structures. The Tumble Buckets feature assures you’ll get soaked; continuously fill with water and douse anyone playing below. The play structure features a slide, climbing ladders, water cannons and adjustable sprayers that kids can control. For the daring, our giant 165-foot twisting, turning water slide will keep you coming back for more fun! Our kiddie pool is shallow with fountain type features.
