Sea Lion Aquatic Park is more of a network than a single pool—the park splits its reservoirs into separate areas for different ages and activities. Six lanes stretch across the 25-yard lap pool, which also serves as home to the Sea Lion swim team. Two body flume slides twist and turn into landing pools, while two short drop slides send riders into a "splash playground" filled with interactive water games. The Vortex pool, on the other hand, creates water resistance that's ideal for water aerobics; but turn the other way, and it becomes a mini lazy river.
The park also offers birthday parties and pool rentals. Special events take place throughout the summer, including a cardboard boat regatta for all ages and an after hours event for teens.
