New Aquatic Center in Milwaukee, WI

By
Real Estate Agent with Shorewest Realtors

If you live in Milwaukee, WI, you know our summer days can get quite hot and often quite humid.  This summer there is a new way to cool off: The Dave Schultz Aquatic Center.  Located at the corner of Green Bay & Hampton Avenues, in Lincoln Park. http://www.county.milwaukee.gov/Pools9145/LincolnAquatic.htm

 

In years past, many county parks had a swimming pool, many have been closed due to lack of enough swimmers.  In the mid 90's a UWM study concluded that the "waterpark" was a more popular alternative to deep well pools. Dave Schultz the Milwaukee County Executive at the time, ran with the idea, and the waterpark areas started to be built in some parks. 

 I had to talk my way in, to take this photo from the top of the water slide!

 

 

 

The Aquatic Center in Lincoln Park features a large pool with interactive water areas/splash pads, the largest lazy river in the area, 2 water slides, 2 lap lanes, and a diving well with 2 diving boards.  The pool is surrounded with concrete deck and a large grassy sunning area. 

For a nominal fee, a family can spend the day here and enjoy a fun day in the sun and water. The pool is open 7 days a week through the end of summer.  On hot days, it fills to capacity with a waiting line, so get there early!

Appropriately named after our former County Executive, Dave Schultz's family was on hand for the dedication early this season.  Dave passed away last fall from heart disease, but his larger than life spirit will be remembered as more and more swimmers use this new pool!
