Water features, a play structure and indoor body slide sets the Ciccotti Center apart from the traditional indoor recreation center pool. While the play structure and features may be the focal point, the flexibility of this facility is in the pools themselves. The facility is comprised of distinctly different bodies of water, each designed to respond the needs of a unique segment of pool users.
