The Kingsport Aquatic Center will celebrate its 10th anniversary later this month with a day filled with outdoor games, trivia and prizes and of course water park fun for the whole family.
The special 10th anniversary celebration will begin at 12:30 p.m. May 25 with a special proclamation and comments from city officials. From 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., the celebration will be open for aquatic center members only, then from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. the facility will be open to the public.
Lawn games (giant Jenga, Connect Four and corn hole) will be set up in the grassy area of the lazy river, trivia questions will be asked throughout the afternoon and a live DJ will be rockin’ from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
All outdoor and indoor pools should be open to attendees. In case of inclement weather, the celebration will take place on May 26.
Admission will be $6 for seniors and people under 48 inches tall; $8 for people over 48 inches tall.
“We hope everyone is eager to get back to swimming, sunbathing and having fun this summer,” said Jessie Charlton, interim assistant aquatic manager. “It has been great to see our facility grow over the past 10 years to meet the needs of our community and our visitors.”
In addition, the KAC will open its Outdoor Water Park for the 2023 season on May 20. Individual season passes and memberships can be purchased on swimkingsport.com or in person at the KAC front desk.
The Outdoor Water Park will open daily beginning May 27 through July 30 and open weekends only in May (starting May 20), August and September, weather permitting. As in past years, season pass holders and KAC members will have early access to the park Monday through Saturday – 30 minutes before regular opening times.
