Review of Clarksville Family Aquatic Center
The Family Aquatic Center in Clarksville is a great destination during the summer for Louisville area families that have kids of all ages. Just over the Ohio River in Southern Indiana (super easy to find), it’s clean, affordable and has enough variety to keep everyone entertained!
It is open daily June 3 – July 28
and weekends: August 1-2, August 8-9 from 12:00pm – 6:00pm. Admission is just $5 per person and season passes are available. They have days for special events – so be sure to check their website to see what’s coming up.
We headed to the center on a Sunday afternoon for about 3 hours. It was moderately crowded but we were still able to find chairs. Many folks leave after the 3pm pool break – something to note! The pool is separated by depth with a zero entry pool that’s popular for the little ones (and relaxing parents) with a spray area and a deeper pool for the big kids. No diving is allowed but the kids love jumping in feet first and that is allowed. There’s also two slides – one with tubes/one body slide. Kids must be 42″ tall to go on these and there are life guards at the top and bottom. My kids LOVED these (I did as well).
During our visit, we used the lockers for our wallets and keys. Bring quarters – it’s $0.50 to use a locker. Also, there are changing areas and showers and everything was nice and clean. The kids HAD to get a treat at the snack shop and we found everything to be very economically priced – the kids picked ice cream bars that were just $1.50 each. We also noticed that there was a tent for Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt and a nice picnic area. Although you cannot bring in coolers with outside food, there is a nice picnic area just outside the entry where you could take a break for a meal. They do let you in and out with a hand stamp. And, yes there’s more, there is a sand volleyball court and a small playground inside the pool area.
Guess what? You can even have a birthday party there for just $100!!!!! Truly, it made for a wonderful afternoon and it all barely cost $25.
