Swimmers are less judgmental than chefs, who usually take exception when you hold your nose and splash them with water. Cook up some fun with today's Groupon to the Ventura Aquatic Center. Choose between the following options:
- For $10, you get a 10-entry Splash Pass for one child age 3–9 or an adult age 62 and up (a $20 value).

Nestled inside a 94.5-acre park, Ventura Aquatic Center is an outdoor facility complete with three pools dedicated to either exercise or play. Armed with 10-entry Splash Passes, visitors can participate in open swim, lap swim, and water-polo scrimmages. Swimmers can practice their backstrokes in a 50-meter competition pool or hone their Marco Polo radar in a 25-meter recreation pool. A colorful jungle gym juts from the shallow waters of the kids' activity pool. Two water slides tower over the complex, drawing thirsty giants off the course of their mega-marathons. Red Cross–certified lifeguards preside over the pool.
Ventura Aquatic Center
The rising sun bathes the expanse of turquoise water in a golden glow, and a lone figure breaks its still surface during her morning swim. So begins another day at the Ventura Aquatic Center, where meticulously maintained facilities and engaging programs coax swimmers of all ages into the refreshing depths. A 50-meter competition pool fields the backstrokes of lane swimmers, and a 25-meter recreation pool enables laid-back play sessions. Delighted squeals and giggles drift from the kids’ activity pool, where splashes of water keep little faces smiling and a pair of water slides facilitates high-speed entries. Throughout each day, a crew of American Red Cross–certified lifeguards patrols the premises to ensure the safety of all those frolicking in and around the pools.
Dedicated to educating and entertaining patrons, Ventura Aquatic Center’s seasoned instructors also host group and private swim lessons and water-safety classes. Synchronized-swimming lessons teach pupils the art of tandem movement, and lifeguard training prepares would-be rescuers for real-world rescue situations. Diving and water-polo teams unite players for in-pool athletics, and aquatic summer camps stave off the boredom and nostalgic re-readings of last year’s report cards inherent to the summer months.
