Parkers Prairie Pool
The Parkers Prairie Aquatic Center features a zero-entry area, perfect for toddlers and non-swimmers. The zero-entry side progresses to a 2.5-foot depth, with a basketball hoop and “sprinkler” features. The middle channel connects the zero-entry side with the deeper side of the pool. This “channel” can accommodate a wheel chair or a walker, and is a nice feature for those who enjoy a “gradual” entry into the pool. The deeper side of the pool begins at a 3.5-foot depth at one side, and progresses to a 10-foot depth at the deep end. There is a diving board at the 10-foot depth.
Upon entry to the facility, the staff will ask swimmers “what color wrist band” they require. The PINK wrist band is given to toddlers for the zero-entry side. A GREEN wrist band is given to swimmers who may use the zero-entry side, as well as the 3.5-foot to 5-foot area (up to the rope). A BLUE wrist band is provided for experienced swimmers who have access to the entire pool, including the 10-foot (diving-board) end of the pool. Our focus is on the safety and enjoyment of visitors of ALL ages and swimming abilities!
The construction of the Parkers Prairie Aquatic Center was made possible by donations from many wonderful individuals and businesses. The Aquatic Center is a $2.2-Million facility that was built for the City of Parkers Prairie from 100% DONATED FUNDS. No Public funds/tax money was used for the construction of this amazing project! We wish to THANK all of those who volunteered, donated, and worked toward the goal of providing this wonderful gift to the residents of Parkers Prairie and surrounding communities. Please allow us to WELCOME you to Parkers Prairie, and join us in celebrating the SUCCESS OF COMMUNITY!
