Clay Center Aquatic Park


Clay Center Aquatic Park offers something for the whole family. Whether it’s taking a casual ride around our lazy river, enjoying family time down our family slide, showing what you’ve got going off our 1 meter and 3 meter boards, or feeling the rush going down our two large slides, or just relaxing in our heated water, there is something for everyone!

We offer several exercise classes including low impact water aerobics, high intensity aqua zumba, water walking in the lazy river, or swimming laps. Check out the information below or contact us if you have questions.
