Summer vacation is almost over for the Aquatic Center in Wood River, IL.    So bring the family to enjoy some fun in the sun at this recreational water complex.  The little ones can swim in the wading pool away from the rambunctous older ones.  Practice your diving or get in some serious laps in the olympic size swimming pool.  And don't forget the very fun, four story high twin water slides!   Sit back and relax in one of the many chaise lounges or sit up on the deck to watch all the fun.  Concessions are also available. Don't know how to swim?  The Aquatic Center offers classes.   Looking for an idea for your next party?  The Aquatic Center is available to rent for private parties after hours.
