There is a new place in Chandler where people can go to cool off during the summer heat. The Mesquite Groves Aquatic Center opened July 19th, and was at capacity within an hour and a half. The facility is adjacent to Basha High School near Val Vista Drive and Riggs Road. This is Chandler's sixth public aquatics facility. You can see all of the Chandler aquatics facilities by clicking here.
The Mesquite Groves Aquatic Center features two slides, one is open and one is closed. It also features a lazy river feeding into the play pool, a spray pad with water buckets for children, and an eight lane competition pool and two diving boards.
Now that school is in session, hours are 9am - noon, and 4pm - 7pm weekdays for the children's pool. The entire facility is open Saturday and Sunday from noon - 5pm until September 1st. The cost is only 50 cents for children ages 2 - 17, adults 18 - 54 are $1.50, and seniors 55 and older are 75 cents.
The Mesquite Groves Aquatic Center is phase 1 of a three phase project that will include an urban fishing lake, a dog park, a recreation center, softball fields, and volleyball courts. Just another way for everyone to enjoy the City of Chandler, and all it has to offer.
