— A trade magazine has ranked the Triangle Aquatic Center as the best indoor facility of its size.

Aquatics International, an information source for aquatic facility management, products and services, cited the center's state-of-the-art facilities and its growing programs.

“TAC celebrated its first birthday on Oct. 28, and this is a wonderful present,” Michael Curran, volunteer president of the public facility, said in a statement.

Triangle Aquatics Center serves more than 25,000 people per month and hosts swim meets and water polo competitions for USA swim teams, public and private high schools, local colleges and Special Olympics, Curran said. It also offers health, safety, recreation and competition aquatic programs.
