    Henry Moses Aquatic Center Is Open Thru Labor Day

    The Henry Moses Aquatic Center sits in the center of the Cedar River Park Complex and includes a 9,000 square foot, zero-depth activity pool, two 26-foot water slides, a lazy river, island lagoon, water spray area, a 3,300 square foot lap pool and wave pool. The wave pool provides 3-foot ocean-like waves with five unique patterns. The aquatic center also includes a bath house and lockers as well as The Shark Bites Café. 

    Safety is of the utmost importance. Lifeguards receive training from Red Cross Certified Instructors and are required to pass several swim tests before being hired. The guard training continues throughout the swim season with weekly in-service training sessions to insure the facilities commitment to safety.

    The facility also features a refurbished 1960’s dolphin sculpture named “Flipper”, a wall mural depicting spawning salmon and a stainless steel mural honoring the Duwamish Indian Tribe. 

    In keeping with the size of the facility, the goal of the Henry Moses Aquatic Center is to provide an intimate, family friendly environment for the young and young at heart. From the cleanliness of the facility to the friendliness of the staff, the aquatic center’s goal is to offer everyone who visits the most memorable experience possible.
