The Glidden Aquatic Center opened on Memorial Day 2005 and is located at the corner of Hwy 30 and Arizona Street. Swimmers may enjoy a variety of features including zero depth entry, sprays, children’s play structure, flume slide, family slide, diving area, lap swimming, and water basketball. Parents and grandparents can enjoy watching their children in the grass lounge area with two large coolbrellas for the shade lovers. The six racing lanes provide a home venue for our local swim team.
Group swim lessons are taught in the month of July using Red Cross guidelines. The aquatic center is handicap accessible. Dressing areas are available for male, female, and families. A large assortment of your favorite beach snacks is available at the concession stand.
The aquatic center is open daily 1:00 – 7:00 p.m. (weather permitting). The aquatic center season begins Memorial Day weekend and ends in late August.
