Dawson Creek, Beaches & Swimming
I love swimming in our new aquatic center! Growing up in Dawson Creek, I liked the old Centennial Swimming Pool downtown, but wow... the new one is awesome!
We have an eight lane competition pool, a huge hot tub for soaking and socializing, sauna and steam rooms, male, female and family change rooms, 1 & 3 meter diving boards, a swirl pool that is designed like a river for swimming or walking against the current, a huge waterslide, and a little kids play pool.
Regardless of the weather outside, it's warm and bright inside. We love to take our out of town visitors swimming.
The aquatic center is part of our multiplex. We have a 250 meter walking track, a 6,500 seat events center which regularly hosts big names and events and an equestrian center, all in the same building.
There is plenty of parking for RVs. It's a great place to take a break, get some exercise and enjoy the water.
I'm getting up my nerve to try the waterslide... it looks like so much fun!
