I went over to Buffaloe Road Aquatics Center this morning to snap a few pictures of the facility, including the three-story slide, tot play area and spacious rooms for individual families to change in. I'll have a bigger post about it all tomorrow.
First impressions (without actually getting in the pool): It's really nice! It's not huge. Terri Stroupe, the city's aquatics director, tells me that it's about the size of the year-round pool at Millbrook Exchange Park.
But there are several features here that will make it a lot of fun for kids and their parents (including a bubble bench where you can sit and watch your kids play while you enjoy the massaging bubbles).
Check our image gallery to take a look. I'll have more about it Thursday evening.
Find the indoor aquatics center at 5908 Buffaloe Rd. between New Hope Road and Interstate 540
