It's been hovering around the 100 degrees mark here in Utah County for the last week. So naturally we are seeking out anyway to be near water that we can. The Lindon Aquatics Center has been one of our family favorites for years and we hadn’t been yet this summer so we headed that way as the temperatures soared last week.
We were so happily surprised to see some new features added to our favorite public pool. This year they have a small wibit system. If you aren’t sure what that is (I didn’t know that word either) its a series of floating toadstool steps that create a ninja warrior type obstacle in the pool.
Its probably best suited for children 4 and up. We saw teenagers having a great time on it. And a toddler with a life vest on it having a try. My girls age 7 and 9 thought it was the best time ever.
It took a try or two to get the hang of it but before we left they had mastered it and were feeling like real life American ninjas. Some of the fun though is the wipe outs.
There is also a new climbing rock wall over the pool. So the kids can climb up and then the only way down is to jump into the water.
The rock wall is a permanent structure but the wibit system is only in the pool on Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.
And besides these new fun obstacles, the Lindon Aquatic Center still has lots of other ways to cool off while having fun.
The pirate ship slides are a favorite with the younger crowd.
And there are a couple different little pools.
The lazy river floats you around most of the park and is a favorite for the whole family. They allow almost any type of float tube but be sure to bring your own because they don’t have any to provide.
There is a big yellow slide that is quite a thrill. Any child can go on this with an adult. Children over 48 inches and children who have passed a little swimming test a lifeguard can administer there can go alone.
While most of the Aquatics center is ideal for kids maybe 18 months to 10 years old there is a flo rider for older children.
Hopefully it will cool down around here soon but even if it doesn’t you can get out and find some fun and take your family to the Lindon Aquatics Center.
