Today the center continues to provide the best in public recreation facilities. It includes:

  • Indoor and outdoor swimming pools

  • Basketball courts/Multipurpose gym
  • Aerobics room
  • Juice bar
  • Kitchen facilities
  • Banquet facilities
  • Meeting rooms
  • Central atrium and an open design
  • Kidszone

The heated indoor pool features a pleasing free-form design with a lazy-current channel, bubble couch, vortex, hot tub/whirlpool spa, waterslide, and an area for lap swimming. A separate whirlpool, steam room and sauna are also available.

The heated outdoor pool includes a waterslide and a variety of other play features with areas no deeper than 3-1/2 ft. (perfect for little ones).

Our spacious fitness area has over 100 pieces of cardio, circuit training and free weight equipment. A four-lane, non-banked, 1/12 mile track offers a view of the pools, gymnasiums and casual activities area.

The casual activities area is a meeting place for everyone. With views to almost every activity area, it is the “hub” of the center. Features include a 60 ft. waterfall (which hides the elevator quite well), a grand staircase, and a skylight.

Indoor Pool

Considered the most popular place in the City of Middleburg Heights, the natatorium area offers wet fun for everyone. As opposed to the traditional “rectangular” lap pool, this free form body of water links several wet attractions together. The tot pool area has a shallow 4″ start and slopes to 18″ at its deepest point. In the center of the tot pool is a bright and colorful play feature with a slide, water jets and plenty of rope pulls and wheels to turn for interactive fun.

There is a current channel that can be used as a “lazy river” with inflatable floats or as therapeutic resistance walking against the current. There is a bubble couch, an in-water bench area and an above-deck hot tub. A three-lane lap area anchors the current. This 4-1/2 foot deep area functions for either short lap swimming or as an open area for water aerobics programs. Another offering for the pool areas is a circular vortex section with an in-water bench and swirling water currents.

The last area is the splashdown pool for the 14 ft. tall, 100 ft. long water slide that is a hit with thrill seekers of all ages. The entire pool area is bathed in natural light through the seven expansive arch-topped window openings that face south. The indoor pool has views  through these windows to the outdoor pool area as well as views that open to the track above and into the casual activity area. The pool area also has a sauna, steam and first aid room, along with office space for the lifeguards and the aquatics director.

Outdoor Pool

The outdoor pool area is the summer complement to the indoor pool. From June through early September, the outdoor pool is a haven for “beating the heat.” The outdoor pool has a zero entrance beach and shallow play area for small children. There are many play features, including water cannons, tumble buckets and a lily-pad walk.There is also a splashdown pool for the 17 ft. tall, 120 ft. long outdoor slide. In addition to all the fun features, we have plenty of deck space for lounging in the sun.

A separate concession stand and eating area provides cold drinks, quick meals and tasty snacks. The design also incorporates a secondary entrance through a ‘gate house’ check-in for quick access to the pool without walking through the building.
