Have you been to the Mountain Park Aquatic Center? If you live around Lilburn or Mountain Park, I'm sure you have noticed there on Rockbridge Road near Five Forks, just up the road from Kroger. But have you been there?
It is a great facility. In addition to the community center which hosts a variety of events, there is the outside recreational pool, an inside instructional pool and the lap pool.
There are different programs available ranging from Parent Assisted Swim Classes to Aqua-Aerobics for Seniors. There are swim team competitions and swim classes for older children and adults.
The gem, though, is the recreational pool. It has a "zero entry" which means that one can walk into the pool with no steps. There is a small slide with a water-works theme for the smaller kids to play on. The water around it is fairly shallow. There is also a "lazy river" which allows people to float around it and under a waterfall. Finally, there are two larger waterslides for older kids and adults.
The prices are pretty reasonable.
There are also walking trails around the grounds for alternate exercise.
