Heated, Olympic sized 50 meter swimming pool with ten, seven and five meter diving platforms as well as three and one meter spring boards. Curly slides for the ride of your life or the new speed slides shoot you down at over 35 miles per hour. Lots of grass space for picnicking or you can purchase food at the on-site grill. Outdoor pool is open the summer months only. the Indoor Aquatic Center is open all year with a poolside climbing wall, springboards and basketball hoops. Heated floors throughout the dressing rooms provide warmth and comfort for all swimmers. Coming in winter of 2013 is an indoor kiddie play area with all the fun a zero depth splash and play area can provide. Year round fun coupled with access to the World Famous Hot Pools make this a must see and do destination.

Large green lawns, four big water slides, indoor pools, kiddie play area, clean pools and decks. The dressing rooms were clean and the price reasonable. Get the combination pass so you can do the hot pools too.

For this visit we spent our time at the Portneuf Kiddie Cove. This is great place to take young children. The water is warm and the pool is not very deep. There is a hot pool near-by that is available during this time as well....More

The Swimming Complex is a great way to spend a hot day. The complex offers something for all swimming abilities. This is a great place for a group get together, family reunion or just a relaxing day in the sun. The facility does get crowded...More

Lots of fun for all in our group. Something to do for most ages. Bring your own shade and chairs. Outside food is allowed. Lifeguards were well trained and took their responsibilities seriously. Pricing is family friendly as well.

The pool and slides are fun but they really need to fix the showers. The water pressure out of the showers is literally like a pressure washer. It is either on or off. These showers will rip your skin off. My wife got bruises from...More

Hi, Thank you for your question. No the river is not open, it is very high right now and dangerous. The local tube stands will not be renting tubes either for a while. Thank you.
