Kingsport Aquatic Center swimmers can enjoy the Outdoor Water Park on weekends starting next month and leading up to its closing date on September 25.  All the indoor pools will still be open and the water aerobics classes will still be held.

The indoor Olympic pool and three heated pools are open year round and are open to all swimmers. The indoor pool hours are Monday through Friday, 5:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 6:00 p.m.

The Aqua Run will be available during the weekend hours starting October 1. The Aqua Run is an inflatable obstacle course for swimmers to climb on, involving different hurdles and a slide to reach the end.

After September 25, the Aquatic Center staff will maintain the pool until the final outdoor pool event, the ‘Drool Party.’ The ‘Drool Party’ will be held on Saturday, October 1 from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. The event is open to all dog owners and their dogs that want to swim in the outdoor water park before the cleaning process for winter starts. Dogs must be up-to-date on current vaccines. Please bring records or a receipt from your veterinarian. Admission is $5 per dog and humans are free. The Outdoor Water Park will be closed for the season after the ‘Drool Party.’

In an effort to maintain our first class facility, the indoor pools will be closed for maintenance September 6 through 11.

The Outdoor Water Park will reopen in May of 2017.
