(2) 30 ft. Water Slides
Are you a thrill seeker? If so, take a deep breath and enjoy the amazing speed down our vertical slide. Your body will be sure to skim across the water at landing. Not into “losing your lunch”, try a ride on the triple helix slide. This slide will gently throw you into three turns and pleasantly drop you in the splash down. All riders must be at least 48 inches tall and be able to swim unassisted to the pool exit.
Zero-Depth Entry Leisure Pool
It’s just like walking into the water at the beach. Toddlers and their caregivers will love hanging out in this area of the pool. Multiple spray features, water cannons and an in-water playground (complete with kiddie slide) will keep the little ones entertained for hours.
450 Foot Lazy River
Grab a tube and take a trip around the river. Single and double style tubes available. Watch out for the tumble buckets! Riders must be at least 42 inches tall and be able to swim unassisted to the nearest exit.
Not interested in submerging yourself or your little guy or gal? That’s okay, we’ve got just what you need. Enjoy the shooting water up on the Tots Spraygound area. The water is never deeper than a few inches deep, but plan on getting soaked.
The GAC has 2 one-meter diving boards. Grab your buddies and see who can make the biggest splash!
Giant Sun Umbrellas & Lounge Chairs
If you want a place in the shade, get to the GAC early and grab a spot under one of our three giant sun umbrellas. Lounge chairs are sure to go fast as well.
Men’s, Women’s and Family Changing/Restrooms are available.
Group and Private/Semi-Private swim lessons are offered for all age groups. The Groveport Parts & Recreation Department subscribes to the teachings of the American Red Cross.
