Why Did it Take Me So Long to Visit Holland Aquatic Center?

That’s what I’ve been asking myself since we ended our first yesterday.

The 45 minute drive from our house, the busy schedule we keep, and the many other great Grand Rapids entertainment options available have kept us away. Since none of my friends talked about the Holland Aquatic Center, it wasn’t on my radar. Until yesterday, that is, when our spring break plans fell through and I was left wondering if I could book a night at a waterpark hotel at the last minute. (Turns out that waterpark hotels tend to be booked solid the day of spring break. Go figure.) It was then that I looked more closely at Holland Aquatic Center and decided that a little adventure was in order. Watching this Youtube video sealed the deal.

What to Expect at Holland Aquatic Center

Holland Aquatic Center is part of a larger community health complex with exercise facilities and more. But I think the aquatic center is a big draw for families. Holland Aquatic Center is a state-of-the-art aquatic facility with a water slide, zip line, water obstacles, etc.

Holland Aquatic Center


The aquatic center has an Olympic-sized pool, a waterslide area, and a kiddie splash zone. It’s important to note that different water features are available at different times – not all features are always available.

Features include:

  1. I took my son who is 5 and daughter who is three there today and they loved it! They had so many things to keep them occupied. This was a great way to end the summer. We will definitely be coming back.

  2. My son and I went on 4/3/16. My only complaint is the water is a tad cold. We swim regularly at a local pool and really enjoy it abd it’s temperature, I can say o felt cold during most of my time at the aquatic center :/
