Hurst's Central Aquatics Center - go cool off before the kids go back to school

Hurst's Central Aquatics Center is where my daughter took swim lessons. She took Level I there last year and then Level II and Level III this summer. I was so impressed with this place that I had to share it with you.

I realize that the name of my blog is Fort Worth Mama and this is my second post about Hurst, but I don't think that the City of Fort Worth offers any public pools for its citizens to enjoy. Per the City of Fort Worth's website: "The City's pools will be closed for the 2011 season due to on-going budget constraints and maintenance needs."

While the City of Fort Worth might be struggling with budget constraints, it's my opinion that the City of Hurst is doing just fine with their budget - at least as far as aquatics is concerned.

This beautiful pool is located at 715 Mary Drive which is off of Pipeline.

Their hours of operation are:
Sunday - 1:00 - 6:00
Monday through Friday - 12:00 - 8:00
Saturday - 10:00 - 6:00

This pool is open until August 21st, so go visit it while you still can.

The cost to get into this pool:
Hurst Residents (1 to 64 years of age) - $2
Non-Hurst Residents (1 to 64 years of age) - $7
Ages 12 months and under - Free
Ages 65 and over - Free
Hurst Resident Season Pass - $25/person
Non-Resident Season Pass - $75/person

They only accept cash or checks so be sure and bring some cash with you.

Their website says:
Central Aquatics Center is a state-of-the-art facility featuring many exciting water-based components such as:
  • Activity Pool with zero depth entry
  • Tumble buckets, raindrop, pipe falls
  • 3 berm slides
  • Large slide with receiving pool
  • Children's pool with water play unit
  • Bathhouse with concessions
  • Picnic plaza
  • 2 Pavilions
  • Shade structures
  • Sand Volleyball
You can also have a party there. To learn more about that, click here.

We all need a nice, clean place to get cool during these 100-plus degree days. Go check this place out! I don't think you'll be disappointed.
